Camino

The leafless trees
Call out my name
Inviting my return
I long to walk
The path through them
Such lessons there I learned
The whispers of the dirt
As I stepped along the way
Spoke words I’ve never known
Resounding still in me this day
El Camino Santiago
Is the journey
Not the place
It gave a gift
Of long-felt peace
That was holy restful grace
I’ll meet again
This lingering friend
Our acquaintance I’ll renew
Laces tied
And pack secure
I’ll walk as pilgrims do
