Travelling in Circles

Path 3

each step draws

you around

and around again

in never-ending circles

*

we’ve been here before

walked these paths

 trodden this ground

*

open your mind

open your heart

open your soul

*

and see

how each turn takes you

deeper

*

into your mind

into your heart

into your soul

*

glimpse eternity’s quietude

in the sunlight

playing upon the stones

*

follow the path with

gracious steps

for you walk not in circles

but within a meditative spiral

Path Under Tree

These photos, along with last week’s Wordless Wednesday picture, were taken at a local Japanese Meditation Garden that I visited with my mum (Millie Thom) a few weeks ago. If you’d like to know more about the garden then you can check out my mum’s post about it here. It was a beautiful place.

    • Thanks, Mum. It was a beautiful place to photograph. 🙂 I’m glad you like the poem – I actually wrote that while at work this morning! Quiet days are wonderful.
