FOOTSTEPS - a poem

Written as part of meditation No 15 of Walk With Me.

El Camino Santiago

Basket black large View basket

The Milky Way was always there to guide the men to Finisterre all dressed in skins and woad -

For the journey made the meaning and the footsteps made the road.

 

Then routes from England, Spain and France brought pilgrims here, and not by chance: Santiago was the node -

So the journey was the meaning and the footsteps made the road.

 

Each pilgrim step a perfect prayer and psalms and praises filled the air but hunger was the goad.

In the journey was the meaning and the footsteps made the road.

With scallop shell and staff and hat they had no rucksack, boots or mat. They took the lightest load -

The journey was the meaning and their footsteps made the road.

 

Now from all nations pilgrims walk; they laugh and struggle, share and talk in every style and mode.

The journey is the meaning and their footsteps make the road.

 

And in each heart a mystery: Santiago is the key. They walk to crack the code -

And the journey is the meaning and their footsteps make the road.

 

For those who seek for meaning in depression, pain, despair and sin, then count each episode -

For the journey is the meaning and the footsteps make the road.

 

Walk on, Pilgrim! In your heart, the healing is about to start; you’ll find a safe abode,

For in your journey is the meaning and your footsteps make the road.
