During Lent, my discipline is to be attentive to both inward and outward circumstances of my life and then to write a poem daily. Here is one of my offerings.

The coolness of stone on bare feet,
   painful steps, slowly taken.
Holy ground is not always smooth.
Way forward is not always clear
   or easy.
Pilgrimage involves separation,
   leaving behind the known,
   the familiar, yet knowing
the way is God.
