Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Labyrinthian Ways

on February 29, 2016

Yesterday I walked the labyrinth
Traced path on canvas covering the floor
Church Meeting Hall transformed.
Mystical wordless moment spoke
Welcome so warm I shed tears
And knew at once I had arrived
At a place I know by heart
Promise of challenge and possibility.

Other pilgrims walked the path.
Silently we made our way
In to the center and out again
All moving, breathing, stepping wide
To let each other pass on narrow curves
As one people. With joy I laughed
To understand we are community
Joined in wide world by love.

  1. I really love walking a labyrinth. Of any kind. And your poem expresses the experience wonderfully.

      Thanks, Janet. It was amazing to hear the comments of people in the church who had never walked a labyrinth. Their experience holds true with what I have felt in the past. It is an awesome thing.

  2. So beautiful and wonderful! Happy for you!

  3. I love labyrinths, what a wonderful experience of this one you had.

    The journey to the center… I enjoy labyrinths because they are a physical manifestation of what I often attempt to do when writing… Journey to the center… Touch lives along the way! Beautiful words of sacred journey.
