Travelling and Unravelling - FranceIreland 2010

Unravelling myself from all demands
Seems a daunting task
But I persevere
For it seems I need time to “just be”
And discover something new about me

I’m not sure why I must do this journey
All on my own
Will it become clearer as the days go by?
As the outer landscape keeps changing
I feel more and more at home in myself

Contained by the ancient gothic arches
I stretch and grow
Seeking a clear sign of a new direction
Content to be where I am
And realizing there is no need for perfection

Finding new companions to share the journey
I learn many lessons
Will they apply to me at all in the future?
It’s not necessary to know now
Just to reflect and listen to the profound silence
And consider the landscape.

And ponder how it came to be
So many questions, not enough answers
Only time will tell

A profound appreciation
For gathering around the hearth
And a need to spend more time at the well
The fountain of divine spirit and inspiration

Time spent well
Will allow for replenishment
And an awareness of how to be
much more present

I feel replete, stronger, strengthened
and assured
That I am going in the right direction
I feel profound gratitude
Cleansed, blessed and refreshed

And a strong sense of connection
To my Celtic ancestors
I just know I have a place to go
And time to get to really know
Where I have been!


  1. Wow! Gorgeous poetry, sentiments, pics, and to top it off - spiral text!


  2. Could I ask how you made the spiral text? Is it a template available? I love it and your blog about labyrinths. I am a faciltator and am always lookeing for new insights.

    Blessings on your path, Helen

  3. I love the labyrinth path of words - I had planned to use a paper labyrinth at my next workshop and ask participants to complete the path with words or images that emerged. I had not seen it done before seeing yours today. I attended a workshop on Celtic Spirituality and the presenter gave us a Celtic Cross and ask us to fill in the cross with words -I thought it would be a great idea to do with the labyrinth.

  4. Better late than never! Here is the information about making the spiral text...
    The spiral text service is free and can be found at
    I had to get the web master to provide a user name and password, but he responded very quickly...
