The Weave of Life

by Lynda Lehmann (writer), Long Island, New York, November 02, 2010

Observing the details of nature makes us mindful of the wonder and cycles of life, and our own mortality.

An expression of love for texture as the underpinning of all the Form(s) on Earth.

I move in firmaments of texture

concavities minute as

bumps of binary code

strung like lights in my mind.

I am visual, viewing the universe

in hieroglyphics:

scratches on glass

grass waving in the breeze

silver bangles in lake water.

In and out,

Consciousness swells

before the place

where streams of words

meet Comprehension.

I will die

dissociated from wisdom and certainty

as do all others,

alone on a Rock

where tides flow to Eternity.

Yet still alive,

I choose the arbor path,

a tactile path imbued with inklings of

water, bark, moss, lichen

and wisps of tattered clouds

dancing among treetops,

to savor the likeness of all things

and their interaction:

the Splendid Shining Weave of Life.


All comments and constructive criticism gratefully accepted! I don't know anything about poetry--have not studied it

since high school--but still I have the compulsion to write it from time to time.

"I choose the arbor path ..."

I like this expression.

Thank you so much for the thoughtful and affirming comment. "Inevitability and freshness..." If that is the case, I could not ask for more. I'm grateful for your words.


Thank you for reading and commenting. I can't wait for your next installation of the "bartender" story! I'm wondering if you know yet, where it's going? I spent several years of my life waitressing and I know that in a bar or restaurant environment, strange and intriguing encounters may ensue.... :)
