Silver Threads – Poem of the Month – November 2022

Silver Threads

No road is straight and no hill is too steep
We walk a crooked mile every day
and climb obstacles only to be pushed back down
We stumble and trip, fall and rise
The fabric of our lives becomes worn and threadbare
We patch and repair making sure it stays strong
and sometimes even replace it in order to start again
in a new place and a new time
The arduous journey is never lost or forgotten
It is who we are and we are destined to follow a path forward
Sometimes we take a wrong turn and feel hopeless
but along the way we take the silver threads from our clouds
and weave them into the tapestry of our lives
Their light a gleaming reminder of how far we have come

Gently floating fluffy clouds
Frothy as air, dancing along the wind
Long gone 
A sky thick with blanket of marzipan clouds
Suffocating, sucking oxygen from the atmosphere
Thunderous claps break the heavy silence
Seconds before an electrical charge shoots daggers
Across the darkening expanse
Penetrating the ground avoiding the electrodes
and scorching the earth with its volatility
