We use words all the time to describe something that is without words, then I remembered my first visit to Kyoto over 10 years ago.
I found some photos online that show the only zen garden I visited...During winter, the snow is also arainged. The effect is indescribable. I don't consider myself overly spiritual or emotional, but the effect the garden had on me was on a few different levels. my body felt a vibration like I was at a very loud concert, except there was nothing to hear. My mind felt like a baby's not really comprehending. My heart felt relaxed. http://phototravels.net/kyoto/zen-gardens-ryogen-in.html
Bodhidharma described Zen as:
"Not reliant on the written word,
A special transmission separate from the scriptures;
Direct pointing at one's mind,
Seeing one's nature, becoming a Buddha."
Zen Gardens are a way of transmitting without words.
I've visted many times since, but have yet to experience the garden in the same way each time.
