We are all travellers

Riders of the storm

Seeking out an oasis

Where we can rest

Safe from harm.

What are the goods

You are offering

To your fellow man?

Are your storehouses

filled and ready?

Have you followed

the Creators plan?

How many riders are coming

in the next caravan?

Are your sweet meats, herbs, dried fruit

prepared and waiting at the door?

Are the gifts of welcome

all complete?

Is your hearth and home wide open

Are you ever mindful as you greet?

As you embrace the stranger

It is the Creator whom you welcome

Arriving on the travellers’ weary feet.
