Faith a driving force
Brimming with enthusiasm
Salvation pursued
Reaching out with inner strength
Spiritual beliefs sustained

Mystical cleansing
Fulfilment of craving for
redemption of void
Perceived to enhance good luck
Inspired by strong voice above

For Chev's Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #30 - pilgrimage
Elizabeth's Creative Challenge #10  - voice
Marian's at Real Toad's  -  the tuesday platform
