№ 258. For When You Travel....

May the road sing with your song.
May it confound, bruise and bless you.
May it embrace your shadow as you walk.
May it shelter you as days fold into nights.
May it be
a trail to lead to joyful inns;
a ribbon to charm your signposts;
a color to tint the gray lands;
a lantern to keep the stars envious;
a stitch to bind any wound;
a foe to keep your blood fierce; and,
a fellow to keep the tales going.

May the road end where you began---
In a home longing for you, your gifts and your tales.

Nara Station, Japan, March 2016
