the art of navigation

Poem #22 from a second series of meditations titled: the Pilgrim (2)

Back to the Pilgrim – Introduction


first
the choice of destination
then the route
the path that will be traveled
places
at which to stop

an estimation
of the time for the journey
the moment of arrival

this is all navigation
pilgrim

mathematics and logic
planning and preparation

skilled work
and higher cognitive function

essential undertakings
for any journey
a negligence
to set forth without
.
.
.
.
close your eyes
what do you see
what hear
what feel

now

journey on
