Paths – Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve, South Africa

The path beckons to the distant horizon,
I put one foot in front of the other;
slow and deliberate, mindful and aware.
As if all journeys are pilgrimages.
To go to the next mountain,
or the next country.
Or to go within.
Alive in the knowledge
that each step
takes me further from the known
and into the unknown.
Leaving only traces of footprints behind
to be wiped off by wind and rain.

  1. Beautiful, the poem describes somehow the paradox on my latest days, and the days of many around me fixed the path which is somehow unknown, uncertain but reflective lights of awareness…..beautiful setting.
