I Have Always Known (Almost Wordless Wednesday)



I have always known

That at last I would

Take this road, but yesterday

I did not know that it would be today.

— Ariwara No Narihira


Photo taken just outside Figeac, France. The red and white stripes on the tree mark the Chemin du Puy, the Camino stretching from Le Puy to Saint Jean Pied-de-Port, France.

(hat tip to Robert Woltman and his lovely piece  on “The Spiritual Aspects of the Camino” for introducing me to this poem.)
