Silver thread in time

sewing seams in all our lives

patch the holes of dissolution

let those resolutions shine

regardless of the compromise

 

The dragonfly accepts the jar

the walls close in and disappear

then illusions of grandeur

fly away

fly away

fly away wherever

but still the jar

 

Silver years

pure after all the tears

with fear forgotten or overcome

those silver years I dreamt once

 

In empty rooms the dreamer spins

the glass surrounds and holds him now

his wings are aching to catch the wind

to fly and find that light

in galaxies of endless night

that silver

thread

in time

 

 

Silver Thread I: Elizabethan

 

Silver thread in time

precious silver shining

something that nickel will never be

silver
