Camino Prayer

Prayer for Remembrance

 

Truly,

on the Camino

walking from Castañeda to O Pino

I encounter so many pilgrims

giving such love -–

the American sharing food with the

Lithuanian, the Frenchman helping the

injured German, the farmer providing

a freshly grown snack, the business woman

stopping to give directions,

the prophet offering

all in need a wise word or a hug, everyone

singing and laughing and crying together as we walk --

that I ask myself

how can people forget our connection

to each other?

 

Truly,

does the flower guard against

the kiss of the bee?
