These things

They come to me

Woven like a tapestry.

I contemplate

The fabric of it

While I feel

For texture

Unlike the smooth

Rounded edges

The metaphor

Is full of design


A bit more contoured

I decipher how

Sometimes there’s

An entanglement

When the lines

Are not parallel

And the distance ahead

Is not so clear

Woven is the tapestry

The sky is painted


There are many

Angles to see the thing

In another perspective

The turquoise sky

Has turned black

And now all is eerie

This life is like a woven

Piece of fabric

An intricate design

A flourishing landscape

Amid busy streets

And pedestrians walking
