Random Saturday: Labyrinths

I walk labyrinths in the rain.
Sometimes the paths take me closer to you,
other times they lead me away.
I don't know if this pattern will guide me to my goal
or back into the unmappable world.
Of one thing I am certain, though:
Somewhere you too meander circuitous trails,
and I wonder if you ever think of me
as you walk labyrinths in the rain.

Ann, I love this. You've described marriage so utterly perfectly, I teared up.

This one belongs in a frame, on my wall.

I think of everyone and everything as I wander the labyrinths, rain or shine. That's what labyrinths are for.

At first I read this as a love poem of sorts. (I love the rhythm of it) Then I pulled back and thought more on a broader front. Gives the poem wonderful depth.
