Morning Labyrinth Contemplation

For those of you with me for a while, know I love labyrinths. They really are good places to do a walking meditation and contemplation. Just walk it and see what shows up. Clarity. This labyrinth is at Sugar Creek Bible Camp in the beautiful driftless (unglaciated) part of Wisconsin where I meet some fun ladies annually for a crafty, chatting weekend. Enjoy the poem.

Sugar Creek Bible Camp labyrinth
Morning Labyrinth Contemplation

Weaving my steps
into a life fabric,
a compact circle, cycle
looping in and out of ancestor lives
and deaths
and rebirths.
Walking miles in a small universe
held by the land
and love.

Pausing in the middle
contemplating the walk in 
and the walk out.
Nothing is tragedy
only movement,
change yet not new.
All comes back to the same space. 

Around a corner
facing another direction,
another loop,
another corner
facing North again.
All directions forward
and repeating
North South East West
Birth Life Death Rebirth.
We will tread this long path again
in the form of our progeny
Forward and repeating,
weaving their steps
with our steps
Walking eternal miles
in the small universe.
