I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Worlds Within Worlds

I walk the invisible paths
of cyberspace
to a centre of art and poetry.

There I find labyrinths
in poem after poem
answering and extending each other.

Today in the physical space
of the Goddess Circle
we sing and dance and meditate

and walk in dance a labyrinth.
We carry invisible candles, and 
are linked like a thread, hand to hand.

We take our light into darkness,
then retrace our steps,
winding our way back out.

A simple ritual and profound.
The deep core.
The ever-expanding circumference.

At the Project 365+1 blog where I've been a guest this month, someone posted a poem on the labyrinth theme and it inspired others. Then the real-life event described above seemed a wonderful piece of synchronicity, and an occasion for me to write a labyrinth poem too.
