    Tell me again
    Oh Pilgrim fair

    Why I Must
    Travel the Way?

    Why Must i be drawn from afar, to some land..known to my heart
    Unknown to my feet
    Known to my soul
    Yet have never breathed the air

    Why..old Pilgrim there
    Why does my heart beat in time
    In between dreaming..and awake
    To the footsteps
    To the winds...whispers in my ears
    To my footsteps
    One by one
    Until ime done
    To a footstep in the night
    That reminds me
    Ime not yet gone?

    Tell me Pilgrim
    Tell me of far off places
    Close to your heart...
    Of places close
    That have no feel of home.

    The long empty stretches
    Bereft of steps
    Silent but for the whispers to your soul.

    The Wind talks to no one there
    They're there..all for their own sake?

    I think not.

    Why must..I
    I! Go.

    Ultrea
    Buen Camino
    Que..te Vaya Bien

    I have known Freedom
    Because I have known cages
    I have known Happiness
    Because of Sorrow
    I have known Life
    Because I have seen too much.

    Pilgrim
    Your days are counted
    Get busy Living or stay busy trying.
    Surrounded by Infinite sorrow...
    You Pilgrim
    You Know Joy,

    You have stepped out of Chrysalis
    And into the winds
    You will never be the same.

    I know you
    I know you by your eyes.

    They have seen the light

    I Remember now
    The Call..is why.

    Pilgrim on the Way
    Dont worry why your there
    Be..There...
    Spend your Time
    Do you understand?
    Every moment important
    Live fully within your time

    Be Blessed on Your Way

    Your life is your Poetry
    Every step
    Every Joy
    Every Sorrow...

    Your very steps as you walk out of nites resting place will be the poem to someones life journey.
    The sun in the wisps of hair touched by the saucy breeze somewhere in Spain
    Your scent comingling with that of spring flowers...
    Your Laughter in the sunshine of Santiago!
    Is all Poetry.

    We are all poems
    Written or yet to be
    We are all a part of some greater verse
    Every Pilgrim adding theirs to a greater tome.

    Once heard somewhere..
    "Words may move a man"
    "But only man, Moves a man"

    Your Poetry is known to those who Count
    In your Life..and in theirs.

    You..
    Have Gotten about the business of living.

    One day..this may be a great Mystery
    Why did you go..
    When the light is gone down
    People may ask..why
    One will wonder and ask..Why Not.

    There is something about you now
    Mystery somehow
    Breathed in for the Last time
    Breathed out for the First time

    They think you are the only one to reach for the surface...
    You..
    Fighting the Current.

    Your breath held in for so long
    As long as you could
    You were running out of time
    So off you go
    Posh against the falls

    Your not the only one
    Breath out
    And they breathed with you
    Know
    Your not the only one

    What is back home?

    What?is back home.

    You, found your way
    Your..Way.
    And you can never be the same.

    I..
    We..know you by your Light.
    Pity for those who have eyes
    Yet cannot see.

    Pity those whove ears
    Yet cannot sing.

    The Reality of the Way
    In contrast with the way of reality.
    One is truth
    One..is mearely coping with the mortal Coil.

    Angie
    May the Road rise to meet you
    May the truth of things be ever in your sight.
    Be Blessed Pilgrim!
    Pilgrims All!

    I have often shared with people that when I have read a particularly good book I feel as if the writer uses "his pen" as a paintbrush to create a vision or scenario in the mind's eye or feelings in the soul.
    It fascinates me how writers such as yourself are able to do this with words.

    Incredible.
    Thank you for taking the time to share your gift with us.
