a time and space weave

to darn a sock

if the mending were love

or to honour that within us which makes us happy

with a choice of thread that may be so pleasing.

to give an inner glance - to a memory of closeness

in that quiet sewing space

lessons learned of love and loss

and also to the past for better or worse -

unchangeable -

emotions mix

and choices made - the weaving of

time and space -

with really good thread of our liking if we can

and that pleases us - in our daily routine -

and suits us too

that we can weave with

the current stitching lessons up to date.

is seemingly to be the most important.

for we have our thread in life -

and we are the weavers -

catching our lives -

in many different baskets

many different weaves.

and some are indeed beautiful -

and some need work

some are beautiful and also maybe what is

just right.

in this here and now.

I have my needle and thread -

and I have maybe my weave

which I am growing to know better -

it's the one I love and that works for me

and yours is yours for you.

but clearly - the familiar and the disruption

give pause to undo a few threads -

to review and looking again at our work

in quiet contemplation.

work should seem a cold thing to say.

so I will say looking at you.

and looking at us.

I see it's not a yes or a no -

or a right or a wrong -

perhaps - just what works -

and how to sew -

in what suits us each best

and most importantly -

what we do right now

what we can do right now

to fit this

our sewing lessons to date

where we live

we are all a work in progress -

we are all arranging our baskets

in life

and seeing the different weavers next door

and along the way too

we're ever knitting forward...

and letting go -

remembering in that quiet space sometimes

our emotions mix

on thoughts of love and loss.

I'm healing now, and I wasn't sure I would.
