Epiphany Season re-blog: Travellers

Travellers

What if the Magi never arrived?
Do we stay put quietly,
pretending it was all in our imagination?
Do we stay safe,
shielded from a world of fires, sickness, exile and injustice,
facing the new decade alone, unblessed?

Or do we dare to dream?
To step out anyway,
joining the host of travellers
who moved off into the unknown
to follow the star by a different route.
Knowing that gifts may come at a price,
but that freely embraced they can
lead us to lands beyond our imaginings.
