Tapistry Of Life - Poem by Jim Blackman

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
