The Staff


My Staff with Canturbury, La Mont Saint Michel,  Jerusalem (not seen) and Santiago Badges

Trusty rod – a support and companion

Practical and yet symbolic

Of the aid we receive in this world chaotic

As our life’s journeys are made


The staff upon which we lean

Like the pillars of faith given from above

A simple reminder upon our way

Of a Father’s eternal love


It bears emblems of where we have been

The places – mere glimpses of where we have yet to go

Our pilgrimage is of yet incomplete

Till we reach that throne aglow
