progress

Poem #41 from a series of meditations: the Pilgrim

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


it is not always prudent
to go forward
pilgrim

sometimes it’s necessary
to step to the side
or go back
in order to proceed

when you find it timely
to retreat
draw from the familiarity
of known ground

then look forward
again
with refreshed clarity
about yourself
and your purposes
