The Tapestry Of Life - Poem by Debra Kay Robinson
Hidden within the spectrum of invisible light
A fabric is woven
By threads of pure energy
Through the binding of molecules, chemicals and small electrical charges
Undetectable by the strongest of microscopes.
Threads of energy powerful enough to attract—
To create and build—
Or devastate and destroy.
It's really a matter of choice
And at times the pure strength of one's will.
Energy that serves as the foundation
To all words…
Love and hate—
Or the politically correct "strongly dislike"
A Pandora's Box?
Every now and then-
We have seen things we never wanted to see
Or should ever hope to be seen.
As attested to in the stories of the far-reaching consequences of Adam and Eve
When "Because I said so"
Really should be enough!
We have enjoyed adventures, realities and experiences—
Once nothing more than dreams
Or distant places.
The final product,
Yet to be determined.
But it is a fabric that we all have a stake in weaving
One stitch at a time
Individual patterns and color selections.
The interlacing of seams
Occasionally in need of a seam ripper
Slowly being brought into existence.
For better or worse
The tapestry of life.
