On the California Zephyr …

from Denver to Moab
I see the a herd of elk running
beside the last car of the train,
and suddenly I am seeing
the path of their hooves
in the snow everywhere.

Not a mile of travel passes,
without my recognizing their prints.

Sometimes all a person needs
is to see God,
in order to recognize
holy footprints all over the world.

Somewhere someone is waiting,
for you to lend God your face.

  1. I keep hoping to take a long train journey someday. I’m so glad you’ve made that happen for yourself. Enjoy the holy footprints.
