From All Directions

from all directions
the misery of pilgrims
stumbling on their way
~~ ~~ ~~
a privilege, they say,
to come from all directions
to one holy place
~~ ~~ ~~
the stale old stories
coming from all directions—
family reunion

  1. Reminds me of Nepal.
    God give them the strength.

  2. This feels like walking over broken glass..but then i guess any kind of pilgrimage requires some sacrifices

  3. these are bitter sweet

  4. I can so sympathize with the family stories…

  5. The first and second seem holy. The third – I wondered if you’d been listening in at one of my families’ reunions.

  6. I thought of the Mormon trail. Of course, it is very near to where I live.

  7. Family reunions can make one dizzy…beautiful series

  8. Family reunions – depends on who can make the most noise to gain attention. Also an occasion of forgive and forget perhaps!


  9. Lots of directions … nice series!

  10. the second one i like best; have a nice Thursday

    much love…

  11. wonderful series, the best i like is the third one

  12. All good, the last one especially resonates.
