The Power

Written for:  Carpe Diem #1114, Arrival (at St-Jean-Pied-de Port)

Back in the early Middle Ages, Oviedo was the starting point of the Road to Santiago, but most pilgrims started (and still start nowadays) in the Pyrenees in a little village called Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port. This is the place were our guide, Paulo Coelho (through his novel The Pilgrimage), starts his pilgrimage to recover and regain the power and the light of his sword which he lost at the start of this novel.

rising from the depths of the pond
everlasting love
like a river flows onwards
uncertain of its goal

Here is my attempt:

looking for the power
he goes on a pilgrimage
love is ever present

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
