Fruit of the Loom

A flicker, a twinkle
A sparkle of sun
Thus life’s tapestry
Is subtly spun

Smoothly, the sun
Glides across the sky
Weaving from moments
Love’s hello and good-by

Shimmers of laughter
Of longing and loss
Entwine in the pattern
Of life’s intangible cloth

Softly it dangles
This ephemeral thread
Twixt memories woven
And what lies ahead

The Fingers it slips through
From Love’s endless skein
Untwists our tangles
And hands us more string
