Labyrinth

I discovered
an unexpected gift
on the bluff
above the sea:
smooth stones
line a labyrinth,
someone’s loving labor.

I let the path take me
on a peaceful pilgrimage,
wend and weave my way;
my mind wanders.

I give myself
to the labyrinth,
trusting that,
eventually,
the stones will lead me
to the center
if I just
let it happen.

Thank you, Eileen. I am not sure what I found at the center, but I did find peace on the walk to it.

A bit like life, we must all move forward and give ourselves, to reach the goal. A fine piece, Agnes, thought provoking. Viv x

Agnes, totally unrelated to this poem, but on another poetry forum I am a member of, someone quoted a poem of yours (with your name and all, don't worry) and I felt so proud, not only because I know you, but also because it was a wonderful poem. Just like this one. (And no, I am not leaving, I only need a break)

Wow, thanks for letting me know - that makes me happy :) Hope to see you back after your break.

Interesting stuff, Agnes. Whilst clearly influenced by your discovery, there's much to be said here that could apply to life... we all navigate those labyrinthine paths, never knowing quite where we'll end up. Well done! Regards, John.

A most compelling read! I think this is one of your very best poems, Agnes...and one of the best poems I have read in quite a while - it really is that good! To me it could just as easily be an allegory as a real event...or, indeed, a mixture of both; it certainly seems to contain a hidden meaning. A really excellent poem! My very best regards as always, Agnes. :) john

I do love a labyrinth. My sister once mowed one in her yard; no one noticed. It was interesting though. Well penned, Agnes.

Thanks, Jan. The labyrinth I found was actually commissioned and not built by some random person, but poetic liberty, right?
