The Pilgrim II

By Elvira

Burdened                                with                 a rucksack
traveling                      the road to
Santiago
Penitent,                      barefoot —
promises
made —                                               now fulfilled
kiss the ground
Hear the Mass —
rites transcending
the worship                 of trees
Celtic               goddess
transform                    as         THE VIRGIN
anything to
convert            the Heathens               to the
Truth! (?)

Read before.                           Mountain, valley, towns
The TRUTH hides
where?
Truth   many               colored:
Allah
God
Baal
Comfort, yet only
repetitive        motions —
leap of faith
no wings
no angel
free fall
Infinity.

He                    Bathes             in
the Light of
HIM.
