With every step you take,
this blessing rises up to meet you.
It has been waiting long ages for you.
Look close and you can see the layers of it,
how it has been fashioned
by those who walked
this road before you,
how it has been created
of nothing but their determination
and their dreaming,
how it has taken its form
from an ancient hope
that drew them forward
and made a way for them
when no way could be seen.
Look closer and you will see
this blessing is not finished.,
that you are part of the path it is preparing,
that you are how this blessing
means to be a voice within the wilderness
and a welcome for the way.
