each step of the way
bearing the fragile imprint
of the pilgrim’s breath

~~ 1 ~~
 
blustery evening—
by faltering lantern light
no path for her feet
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
in her small kitchen
a sip or two of cocoa
from a broken cup
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
indulging herself
cocoa sprinkled with nutmeg
Sunday morning treat
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
the farm hands at dawn
hoping that some warmth will come
to the onion field
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
seeking a way out
the imprint of her longing
on wool, foam and stone
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
the grindstone
waiting for a knife
to sharpen
 
~~ 7 ~~
 
nacreous handle
of the old woman’s mirror
her consolation
