Riverdale Labyrinth


trickling fountain
loud in the silent air --
labyrinth room

with moontime flow
I enter the labyrinth
the ancient seven circuits
honouring the Divine Feminine

I round the turns called
the breasts of the Goddess
spiraling
I go to the centre
and back again

I am a 21st century woman
yet this labyrinth stirs
an ancient response

many before me have walked this path

footsteps

theirs and mine

too soon
the labyrinth ends
the world beyond
awaits

I like this Debra. I can 'feel' your journey on the path. And yes, we always have to return to the 'world beyond'. But the journey can be so good.

I love the idea of you being somewhere else while walking the labyrinth. Which you very probably were. ;)

Indoor labyrinth! Why hadn't I thought of this before? Just a wee bit slow I guess.
