Walking on

As we begin the North Wales Pilgrim’s Way…

Take off your shoes and walk a mile in mine
Walk in step unknowing beside companions
Walk slowly alongside those we nurture
Walk with an offer of hospitality and sanctuary to those we meet
Walk with the inspiration to take a lighter journey
Walk with joy in every season
Walk on a wide path with those we meet but rarely
Walk on to catch but a glimpse of those far off
Walk with kindred spirits from other islands
Walk with souls connected at the deep down
Walk on with a shared past, a story of struggle or pain
Walk offering gifts, or generous words
Walk with a conversation picked up from the last journey
Walk with poets whose words become our path
Walk with a protest on our lips and a banner in our heart
Walk with those who hold us in prayer and with those for whom we must pray
Walk with those who offer a new challenge
Walk close to those who are a challenge
Walk softly with those who find us the same
Walk with a shared chance encounter
Walk, lives connected, weaving in and out
Walk with those who sing
Walk gently with those we wish would not sing
Walk as artists gathering the colours of nature
Walk with those we have carried and allow them to carry us in their turn
Walk with the gentle ones, and those who could learn to be gentle
Walk with a vision to go further than we can go
Walk a woven path with the friends of friends of friends
Walk with those who make us laugh at ourselves
Walk with those whose words will carry us until our walking days are done
Walk in the company of strangers who at journeys end become friends.
