The Richer Thread

My Love and Faith are intertwined
not as a knot
but one combined;

For He is Love and love protects
my cloak, my comforter
my strength;

His strong threads drawn through weave and weft
a richly patterned life
to tread;

Through life, the one strong threaded cord
the silver breath
that holds and stores;

His perfect light that staves the dark
the many coloured threads
of past;

And present! On now - see beyond
the endless cloth we're
formed along;

His Grace, by spirit, constant grown
and guides each soul
'till safely home.

See how the cloth is grown and grown:
my Lord, Dear Lord -
I am near to home!

A rich poem like the threads that are woven into making it. Lovely.
Suzanne R 11 Oct 2005
What beautiful analogies you've got here. I especially like the part about love and faith as one, and love protecting. Beautiful - just beautiful.

Alexandra, this is beautiful. I can hear the swishing and beating rhythms of the great Loom of Life in this poem. Wonderful extended metaphor! Thank you!
