In honor of National Poetry Month (and today’s “A Poem in my Pocket” event), I would like to share my most recent poem, written after walking a candlelight labyrinth during our annual Women’s Retreat at Neshoba Church.
Soul Sisters by Chrystal Hogan
Soul sisters, on a journey, we tread our own path.
In… out… circling ’round…
Passing those who lead, watching those who follow.
Beating a rhythm that matches the cadence of our hearts.
Sometimes I move toward her –
Others, I move away.
Sometimes we travel side by side,
One moving forward, the other returning home.
Lost, I put one foot in front of the other until I find my center.
Walking alone, I am not alone.
I follow the path created by another,
Showing the way to sisters I bring to the circle.
