The Labyrinth

there is a palace
let’s say on top of a breathless mountain
or down in a shaded valley
or out in the blue heaving ocean
or the middle of a parching desert

where only is heard the waterfall of the soul’s desire
and only is seen the spirit of face and body
where the heart is the hearth fire
and the light all the instants of our lives
where we can come to the table and eat understanding
where what we both need is satisfied with what we each have
where we look at one another and know we are looking at our own need
and the needs of all the parts of our lives that make us ourselves
and still look with joy, fascination, terror
at the morsels
where we laugh at our morsels knowing that faults are why we can laugh
where agreement and argument are both a delicious dessert
and time and experience lagniappe
the palace is this labyrinth
