Thorns

marking holy sites
cloud by cloud and thorn by thorn—
pilgrim on the way
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
crumbling stones and thorns—
decrepit holy places
luring pilgrim on
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
longing for darkness
to hide the thorns and dangers
pilgrim scans the skies
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
no credible sign
that night will disarm the thorns—
pilgrim pushes on
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
third year on the road
weary of thorns and dangers
pensive pilgrim spits
