There is a single thread,

That runs through every life,

And binds us at the heart.

A web of life so intricate and fine,

A spider silk of spirit

With tensile strength to carry any grief

And share all joy.

Holding us with love

As we journey…

Together and alone,

Momentary touches

Woven and interweaving

Many and One

In a single dance.

This poem features in Life Lines

Available via Amazon

Review extract: “There are just over 50 poems. I believe that poetry should be read slowly, and often repeatedly. I really liked Dance in particular. The imagery was lovely…This is a book I will pick up from time to time and read the poems over and over again.”

    Beautifully written. 🙂
    If only more of us realised we were all connected.


  3. You know? I can’t remember a time when I didn’t know we were all connected. It thought it was one of the fundamentals of human existence. Clearly, I didn’t know anything. I think I know even less, now.


  4. So lovely, Sue… Just took a look inside Life Lines and downloaded a copy to my kindle. ❤


  5. Absolute Perfection, Sue!!
