Wonderful Tapestry

by estory

Threads of faces, voices, music, dreams
Bits and pieces of our family and friends
Running through our lives like colors,
Creating the shapes and movements of our days;
Bits and pieces and glimpses of faces
Embroidered throughout our memories and dreams
Creating the threads of colors in our lives
Like so many voices, dreams and pieces of music
Starting and stopping and starting again,
Starting and stopping and
Glittering across the emptiness of a space
In so many colors, in so many shapes, so many threads
Threads becoming voices, voices becoming music,
A music of patterns of faces and voices
Glittering across the spaces of our lives

Poem of the Month contest entry

What I aimed for here is a compilation of fragmented moments or emotions in life, stitched together into one vision of a life. A density of rhythmic and musical patterns of words, rather than measured meter and rhyme. It's at once haphazard, but also, due to the repetitions, rhythmic in its own way. I like to try new formats and styles, to stretch the definition of what's possible in making music with language. estory
