We are all travellers
to work by car, bus or tram
the walk to supermarket and back again
alone, with friends or crushed
within the confines of a tube or train
we meet but rarely talk rub shoulders but stay apart
discuss the weather but never stray into deeper lines of thought.
We share our journey but little more,
with travelling an evil to be endured.
As with our spiritual walk with you
made in the company of others yet as if alone.
We talk but rarely communicate
meet yet only scratch the surface in our knowledge
about those with whom we journey and of you.
Time spent together an imposition to be endured
rather than enjoyed.
Lord of the journey
transform our travelling into opportunity
each moment to a resource and
our time together a joy
