The Way of the Cross

There is a Cross on Bray Head.
And today, Good Friday, many will climb up to it.
Here is a poem I wrote on a May morning after my climb there.

The Way of The Cross 

In and out through the bright May gorse
Camera shutter opening and closing
Birds click their wings protecting
their young. I climb steadily

Silence where the path snakes
to a bend -Where You stand
Awesome - Head-bowed pilgrims
at your feet.

I descend through coconut scented gorse
to the place where turquoise shallow begins
And stones, like prayers, rise to Heaven -
Pilgrims’ petitions on their Way

to the Cross.
