Journeyman’s Prayer

Comments (0) April 2019 KW Magazine, Poetry

She carries her Dream Basket
Cradled like a baby,
And steps into the meadow.
A head full of images
And the perfect plan for matching them together…
This jigsaw puzzle, Life.

To do All and be All…
Perhaps Rich…
Perhaps Famous…
Perhaps Not….

Afraid, fresh-
She journeys into the thrashing World;
angry reptile here to teach.

Far from home-
Feeding herself…
Alone;
Trying not to crumble…
Not to crumble….

I, weary traveler,
My journey old;
extend the Journeyman’s Prayer:
That tears cried
Will fall upon listening ears
And dark anguish,
Be heard by the caring Soul.
-That dreams be outgrown-
not trampled by heavy feet…

And from a struggling heart,
Pray that Life, with all her pungency,
Combines sweetly for you,
No bitter, sour dish- your only feast….

Traveler, begin-
But in your sack, fold away the Past,
For there will be storms and ugly awfulness…
The memory of Love
Will be the only shelter that withstands.
