The Tapestry of Life


threads from the One unweave to become

individual ones unlike every other

one bright and strong, one dark and flexible

each other as different as the next


they dance and twirl and sometimes knot

as they share space under the stars

contrasts highlight the uniqueness of each and every strand

some stretch, some break under the pressure


beauty and grace there for all to see

a design created out of nothing

awesome wonder at the intricacies of small and vast alike

indestructible when based in truth


the tapestry goes on as more’s to be done

a new story begins each day

the design unfolds as the pieces combine

each a part of the original One
