Blessed be the Wanderers
one foot in front of the other,
apricot and green-veined crown of thorns,
railroad tracks leading onward,
dead ends and heart-shaped leaves,
crunch underfoot and falling off the path.
the path supports.
Blessed be the path,
the winding one,
and stones, thorns,
random driftwood drifting.
Blessed be drifting on.
