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 heartfelt connection,
and youth’s folly succumbs to 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.
It’s been a week of stories – some fabricated, some told in images, some deeply moving. Reading back through them, I was inspired to write the above, borrowing from the essence of each and sometimes even extracting words.
