On The Road

Please, slow down
and walk with me.
Be my companion for a mile or two
and tell me your story,
For I have much to learn
and every pilgrim’s story
enhances my own.
Speak to me of yearnings
beyond people and things
and show me the leaning
of your heart like a needle
towards true North.
It does not matter
that we borrow
from different books
or use different words
to describe the journey.
We are on the same path
whatever shoes we wear.
