Too Much Light 5: Prepare Your Knees

image

The climb –
up hills, up bridges, up avenues –
may smart on feeble knees,
     yet walk.
This is not a path for driving.
There are no lanes free and your mind
will not process the path from inside a car.
Static and traffic-bound, you
will not see the guiding star
and will not feel
the weakness of your knees which speaks
much more of need than traffic knows.
      So walk:
the road is long yet rises to meet you
as you greet the Son…
