Fred LaMotte - Pilgrimage

Make the pilgrimage
into your own heart.

Why travel to Mecca, Benares,
Jerusalem or Rome?

The motion of blossoming -
that golden swirl 

of Allah's most intimate gaze,
Christ's most healing gesture, 

Shyam's inebriating dance -
redounds with divine amazement 

in every atom or galaxy,
lavender frond or breath.

Is there a single infinitesimal

in all of space and time
that does not overflow 

with the nectar
you thirst for?
