Travellers

Not a good time for a journey
Battling against the elements
Hunched against the wind
Battered by the rain
Nowhere to shelter
Just the relentless plodding on
with a deadline to meet
carrying the weight of anxiety
that precludes the hope
of discoveries along the way
And no certainty of welcome
at journey's end,
hoping, at best
for a brief respite
from the weariness
and the opportunity
to draw breath
and gather the resources
to continue the journey.
A common plight for many today
- and little different to the predicament
of those who journeyed
to encounter
the son of God.
2000 years ago.
