Poem #26 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction

oh pilgrim
there is so much
in this place we inhabit
that is without our agreement

without explanation

with no need for our awareness
or involvement

you and I
are mere travelers
regarding the road we walk
with awe and wonder

and if

if there is a purpose
beyond simply passing this way
then that will be played out
in the manner required

in a definition of the purpose
of what we are to do
is not a task assigned
to either you
or me

it is not a factor
in the fulfilment
of destiny
