One of the truly unique features of Lookout Point’s lakeside gardens is the 11-circuit labyrinth. If you’re unfamiliar with a labyrinth, it is a historic form of walking prayer and meditation. Unlike a maze, the labyrinth has no dead ends. Ours is modeled after the Chartres, France labyrinth from the 13th century!
Recent guest David R., after walking the labyrinth, was inspired to write this poem. We are truly honored!
A Place That Breathes Deeply
A place that breathes deeply that falls off the hill
Dionysus lays waiting to fend off your ills.
You yield to the magic of natures great feast
And drink in the nectar that quietens the beast.
Alone in the garden the labyrinth stands round
To take you to places without any sounds.
A spot in the center, the middle is thine
The future is here, Yes, eternity shines.
