Grey, blue, or green?
What color would you use for your tapestry?
Would it be a light or a deep hue permeating the entire space?
Would it have a unique shape?
A circle to celebrate wholeness and completeness
A triangle where always three options appear
Or infinity forever?
Will it have a familiar aroma?
Maybe of your firstborn, or simply warm coffee, or lavender
Of a fragrance that will remind you of the time
When all was okay with the world.
How will it feel to touch this cloth you are weaving?
Would it have needles to remind you of life's perturbing times?
And flowers on another to remind you of the way you have blossomed
The way you stood your ground and survived
The way you paved the road ahead with courage and perseverance
The way you faltered, fell down, and sighed
The way you found your strength to stand up again, to fight
Not anybody else, but the demons that raged within you
Your fears and apprehensions
Your anger and sadness
Your angst and disappointment
Will your design be symmetrical or random?
Will you accept the imperfections of the weave
The slight undulations, the wavering, and the steadfastness
With which you trudge along
Will this speak of the journeys you have made
Through unknown roads, that felt scary
And when you realized you could navigate through a little
Did you ever surprise or shock your own self?
As you surrendered to time, to space, unto your own self
To rise like the phoenix from the ashes
To be born again and again and again, in one lifetime
And to adorn different robes every time, and do justice to them
By acting according to your inner compass that makes you- you.
What would be the weave of your life?
