this is the place

of love and space


on this high plain

scanning sky

as if it were my soul


today is the test

the tipping point


I repack the rucksack,

each thing in its accustomed place


that simplicity

seeming to reflect

a certain precision in the walking


another draft poem to share with you and I’d be grateful for your comments.  This is an attempt at distillation of a pivotal and hard day during the solitary first weeks of walking the Camino de Levante in 2009.

I still remember the day you told me about this adventure through The Empty Space surrounded by nothing, 30 miles or so, hot water to drink… a day to remember as a proof for surpass each and any kind of hardness.

Comment by José Carlos da Costa

yes, that was quite a day! I think 27 miles and very hot. I had been ill, but took a rest by the mountain, sitting on a rock eating plums and chocolate and decided I could get to the end – of the day and to Santiago!
