Life Stages – A Poem

Wrapped in mortality’s blanket the first cradled cry, thine

A brief vacation as toddler, uttering favorite words like, “No”

A trip to youth’s Ashram meditating on the mantra, “Mine”

A passage on time’s cruise ship, in the birth of life’s throes,

A journey wearing a mantle of cinnabar, spikenard and sorrow –

Like the oil flowing down the hem of Aaron’s priestly garment –

Then to preside at the city gates, anointing with drips of insight:

Sojourners, hikers, in a land the Author of Life, has not forgot.
