Lone leisurely pace
Clouds up in heavens above
Bidding company

Pilgrimage in search
Awareness of inner self
Return to one’s roots

Exhaustive efforts
Elusive by nature but
Plodding all along

    make the road a bit easier

  3. Find inner peace as we move along, can be rough to do

  4. Even though the goal may be elusive, it is still worth pursuing, don't you think?

  5. Plodding is a good pace for this journey, in pace with a light wind and slow moving clouds.

  6. Pilgrimage is all about travelling one's own inner space to concord and spiritual truth. Thank you for sharing these thoughts on Real Toads, Hank.

  10. Two winners in one day, Hank. The eternal search always seems to plod along, but that's reasonable. The search for peace, for connecting with Creation, is not speedy. It requires patience and connection to nature. It bobs along like those lazy clouds... Loved this one, babe. Amelita
