Life’s Tapestry

Lorna is a published writer with a particular interest in narrative poetry, which she finds therapeutic.

lifes-tapestry

Our lives are a woven journey

Made up of many strands

With colour experienced senses

Gently threaded by loving hands


These woven strands which stand apart

May fade when we go astray

Yet meander stoically without a route

As they unite to show the way


Like a musical tapestry of endless notes

Threads tighten to overcome strife

Culminating in a chorus of angels

Celebrating the symphony of life


Our biological traits are revealed

In attics of hopes and dreams

We cannot choose the colours

Yet the weave still grows and schemes


Memories through the mists of time

Like pebbles scattered on the beach

Nestle comfortably within each line

Translucent shadows just out of reach


Life’s finished piece is now revealed

Gathered into a beautiful work of art

Connecting all our woven threads

To gently touch our hearts

Lorna,

I read this one again.

It is such a beautiful way of describing our life.

I love how the memories are woven like pebbles on a beach.

Great words in this touching poetry.

Hello Diane, You have sensed the true meaning behind these words. I am grateful. Thank you for visiting.

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 23, 2020:

Lorna Lamon, exquisite the tapestry of love. As we weave in out of God's Love for all he created. Sometimes we become captive in energy pulling us away. But we always take in a deep breath and see the beauty of all creation.

Lorna Lamon (author) on March 16, 2020:

Thank you Peggy, you are so kind. Stay safe in Houston.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on March 16, 2020:

Your poem expresses beautifully all of the influences and paths that we take as our life story is woven into place. You are a practiced wordsmith!

A supremely exquisite piece. Tapestry is one of my favourite words. I use it a lot in poetry. That idea of weaving is so important to the mystic poet!

A brilliant piece, Lorna. I know you have this talent.

Dora Weithers from The Caribbean on January 20, 2020:

Great poetry altogether, but the third verse is like a complete life lesson and message all by itself. Beautiful!

Hello Denise, I love this idea and what a beautiful way to look at your life, through your wonderful art. Thank you for visiting and you kind comments.

How beautiful. I feel my work is tapestry-like with all my art taking a place. Perhaps my life is rather like my collages, each piece with its own face.

Blessings,

Denise

Yes, our lives are all interwoven by people- otherwise, how is it possible that united we stand but divided we fall? Thank you, Lorna for contributing such a beautiful poem.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on January 16, 2020:

Well, Lorna, it is raining heavily today which is wonderful. Yes, Melbourne's air has been terrible the last week. Hopefully, it is raining there also.

What a beautiful poem, it flows like a melody

Pamela Oglesby from Sunny Florida on January 15, 2020:

This lovely poem reflects the threads of our lives as we age and make decisions that sometimes reveal the direction our lives take.

It seems we will have a better perspective once we are older, which is certainly true. Very good job, Lorna.
