Just Some Found Words

If, on the strange path of life,
you happen to meet any of the sisters
Truth, Love or Beauty,
follow them closely.

Eventually you will meet their father,
who had sent them out to seek
pilgrims on the mountain.

He will embrace you
as if he always knew you,
and show you to
the favoured spot by the fireplace.

Put your feet up, take it all in.
Take all the time in the world
to imagine that here at last

your journey ends

you are finally home.
