Every stone marking the path of this Phoenix, Arizona labyrinth has a story to tell. Pilgrim, are you istening?

The stones are speaking.
What strange stories do they tell?
Hush, child, listen well.

    A patient heart will always hear them

    Every stone with a story and emotions!!

  7. The stones speak to me too. I love “Hush, child. Listen well.”

  8. Love your Haiku and the photo is stunning

  9. I like your picture, Ron, the rows of stones go good with your words. I’m not sure if they will be functional when the grape bushes grow or not. My dad brought his to the farmstead using a horse drawn low sled.

  10. Labyrinths are such magical, mysterious places! To listen well is excellent advice.

  11. I’m listening. I used to collect stones, but they remained silent, so I don’t do it any more.

  12. Good time to learn how to listen, especially nowadays.

  13. You have inspired me to create a labyrinth … I do need to collect the rocks first. No small feat.

  14. You’re right, every stone has a story to tell. And an interesting one at that!

  15. I love your labyrinth of stones. I am not sure that I understand the concept entirely but I get that many people find them important. Here, the labyrinths I have checked out have been paint on concrete. I love the stones on the earth better. And as always, a perfect poem to accompany your photo.

  16. Each stone has a story to tell and a history to reveal. Thanks for the imagery and thoughts.

  17. Your site always calms me and gives me a sense of peace

  18. I’m listening with you dear MMT…

  19. Am listening ~ perfect Haiku and photo for Easter

    Be Well,
    A ShutterBug Explores,
    aka (A Creative Harbor)

  20. Listening is what I’m trying to do this Holy Week. Thank you for this beautiful reminder! Happy Easter!

  21. I have no doubt the child will hear. Its the unthinking, uncaring adult I worry about. Insightful haiku!

  22. Such a beautiful haiku! Oh, the stories stones can tell!! Happy Easter dear one, stay safe. Love from Holland!

  23. within the stone
    is the life of the universe
    touch one and you have embraced eternity.
