within the weave

the cloth is spread
black
in all its shades
of darkness
across the table

spread evenly
yet wrinkled
in small spaces

tidy
but occasionally
cratered
by an errant fold

smooth but
here and there
a thread
so slightly
misaligned

the cloth is spread
across an empty table

~

I live
inside a wrinkle
in the smoothness
of a small space
in time

even in the darkness
I
can find some light

I surprise myself
with the unexpected things I do
as they unfold
into the tidiness
of being

smooth smooth
time runs out
before me
to forever
yet
I stumble

and I fall

temporarily
unraveled

I live
this is my cloth
to weave

  1. interesting images here and definitely hopeful in feeling – sometimes it’s the single thread that can make the whole tapestry come to life …. well done Frank 🙂
