a pilgrim carries no sword

by Mara Meade

Love, move me onward.
A pilgrim carries no sword
and neither shall I.

Ditto on all the previous comments. There is much strength and rightiousness in the brevity of your words Mara.

Well, love will never sustain unless it moves onwards. Love can only survive in the growth of the lovers, loving religiously.

Is it the love that moves the lovers onward, or is it the lovers who move the love onward? I believe it is the latter. A wonderful little piece you have here.

and neither shall I carry and burden that sword and I would take no umbrage with your words but marvel and go pilgriming along with love.

Oh where have I been and not been yet? Finding this poem is like finding God's campfire. Warmed by the glow. Beautiful.

So brief yet so full of meaning! Love propels the pilgrim (Christian one anyway). No weapon but love and truth need she or he. Great writing.
