Journeying

IMG_0417Journeying
transitive verb
:
to travel over or through
~Merriam-Webster Dictionary

“To reach something good, it is useful to have gone astray.”
― Teresa of Ávila

“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ernest Hemingway

What can be said
about the path we walk?
That it is forever
winding,
at times
confounding.
That it may
be covered in
flowers,
or shards of glass.

We may walk it
in solitude,
or with someone
we love,
or someone
we loathe.
We may find
peace
in the journey,
Or only
despair
in the process.

But we walk;
and sometimes
we become
aware.
Taking the
steps,
counting our
breaths.
In and out,
we smile
at the flowers
as well as the glass.
