15) Monday – July 31 – Iona

A bit of a sleep in after yesterday’s long trip,
Some even opted breakfast to skip;
We gathered for prayer before a meditative walk
Up to Iona’s highest point, without any talk.
8 of 12 pilgrims made it, prayed for each other at the crest,
(tomorrow at the Abbey we’ll pray for the rest).
After lunch some explored the beaches and scenery,
With the cows and the sheep amidst all the greenery.
This thin place has captured the hearts of this pilgrim band,
It’s hard to imagine a place closer to God than this land.
We enjoyed a nice dinner and before our night’s rest,
We reflected and prayed on what each today liked the best.
