I was a weary traveler, I rode the less trodden path, felt the dust sting my eyes.
I lay in fast pursuit of that which I knew existed,
Of love without judgment, of acceptance without rules, of truly amazing grace.
And with out-stretched hands I reached …to grasp that holy grail of Koinonia,
That challis of hope . To drink from that cup, to break that bread
And partake of the divine in one another.
To find healing with the balm of Gilead that lies in the palms of all our hands.
The touch of sincerity and the embrace without agenda.
Yes I was a weary traveler, I had no place to lay my head.
No hook at the end of the day in which to hang my coat.
No chair at the table of fellowship,
I embraced alone-ness, for loneliness is just a state of mind
In that place I danced with HIM, my Father, my Source, my God.
The divine waltz that whirled me in circles of enlightenment, until I realized that He had become ME
The moment that I AM became the “I” AM!
And I want to shout… This is the good news!!! But, whose ears would have heard.
What kindred spirit did I know that would share this dance, this exchange of divine love, ballet of creative energy, blowing free like the wind.
Whose hand could I take to share my bliss with?
For you see, I was a weary traveler, I rode the less trodden path, and indeed it made all the difference because there is where I found you!
Brightened Bride of promise, welcoming arms of love, “Greater love has no man than this.”
That you love and honor your divine self, therefore you can honor the divine in all things.
With open doors of peace, with boundaries that only freedom can bring…
You are the cool drink on a sweltering day,
The tree shade in summer, and the hearth in the winter.
Refuge full of earthen, artistic soulful mates, raw and unafraid
Force full of God creation, making music on the earth, riding the wave of divine energy
Yes, I was that weary traveler, I rode the less trodden path
And the days in the thickets and the days in the briars were precious
As they were the stepping stones that lead me to YOU! to a winding path,
Round the corner, up the street
In the little white house with stained glass windows.
Together we dance the dance of all creation
And I… I am no longer the weary traveler, I have come home.
All is well. And so it is.
