Tapistry of Life


There is a certain affinity to all living creatures
A thread that weaves thru us all
Binding our lives togather in ways unbeknown to us
Along that thread our thoughts and emotions flow
As a stone dropped in a pond the effects ripple outward
Touching each and everyone of us
Vaguely with such a nuance
Unperceived so often we never feel it
At times though it is as if a whisper in our ear
Awaking us in the middle of the night
We see strangers and see there lives
A glance into one anothers eyes not a word spoken we understand
At a distance feeling anothers joy and pain
Knowing yet not sure how
We are never truly alone
Together we are sewed in this tapistry of life

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
