Across the miles, our words
convene, threads of our lives
intertwining to form a tapestry.
Stories of sorrow and kindness,
humanity restored –
of observation and empathy
of inspiration through resonance
of brilliance and artistry.
Each thread as colourful
as another, delicately added,
Of generations and legacies,
contributing to tragedy,
of infatuation and love’s fallacy,
of childhood and noses in books
and entanglements leading
to ultimate change..
How vivid the imagery,
how poignant the messages
how loss creates connection,
and youth’s folly sorrow,
and how darkness, deeply felt
surrenders to soul’s magnitude.
We come together across the miles
our words, like threads guiding us,
love our searchlight, higher ground
our common goal –
together, as a tapestry.
Life throws me challenges and I create. Writing, painting, and photography have helped me recreate myself after illness stripped me of a career teaching.
