#PoeticThursday . . . A Pilgrim’s Progress.


A Pilgrim’s Progress

I do not have to go
To Sacred Places
In far-off lands.
The ground I stand on
Is holy

Here in this little garden
I tend
My pilgrimage ends.
The wild honeybees
The hummingbird moths
The flickering fireflies at dusk
Are a microcosm
Of the Universe.
Each seed that grows
Each spade of soil
Is full of miracles.

And I toil and sweat
And watch and wonder
And am full of love.
Living in this place.
For truth and beauty
Dwell here.

~ Mary de La Valette
