Pilgrim


The mind is a pilgrim

never populating

a space

aside from itself.

Though wandering it leaves no trace

instead it goes missing

veiled in steady speech

of other things

While hermitage finds

it can be mobile

as well as stagnant

without ever reaching

ideals of a monk

and

Virtues have vacated each place visited

until shame

invites them in again.

  1. The opening concept is excellent and well-presented: “The mind is a pilgrim / never populating / a space / aside from itself.”

    Very beautiful idea. And thanks so much for visiting my page and liking my latest piece!

  2. Beautiful and thought-provoking. Read it 3 times in a row and it ‘felt’ different each time! 🙂 oh and thanks for the ‘like’ on my poem, most appreciated. Kind regards, A.P.
