Tapestry ~

I do not loom my life alone 
a solitary weaver -
Dawn to dusk the shuttle flies 
with color from a flaming cloud 
or silver from a star -
The rich and flowing threads 
of loving friends 
a singing tree
a soothing wind 
a thousand moods and manners
that create a life design -

I do not weave my 
intricate brocade alone -
My hand is held within 
a larger hand - that when 
I let it - moves in shining ways 
Mysterious - it will create 
in spite of flaws 
and labored length 
a tapestry of value -

  18. I love you angel, Margie because not matter what I show you come, yesterday I showcased wonderful works of art from our friends Gabriela and Yoshiyuki, and you're the only one who bothered showing up....what if it's not mine nobody visits except you, always, I'm hurt for my friends that no one except you bothered to leave a single comment ,did the end of the world happened yesterday....or some major epic sports event in the USA 'cause I see that other people got visitors maybe not as many as they usually get but still quite a bit, and not a single word on mine, I'm ashamed, that \I showed the beautiful work of Gabriela and Yoshiyuki and you were the only person who visited, \I hope they don't visit because that would hurt them, so I'm crying because I hate to see any of my friends ignored and hurt, except for you angel, always please tell me that yesterday was so important that nobody could comment except you...
