Common threads tie to each of us a oneness with all life.
Common threads which tie to each of us a oneness with the earth.
Each blade of grass…
Even the wind in our ears…
The sounds of joy or anger in each voice. No matter the language.
The subtle smiles or sorrows on the corners of every mouth.
The flavor and fragrance of every food as it bursts into us
reminds us too.
We are the common thread of life’s quilt,
warming the growth of nations, of peoples, of every individual soul.
Common threads of every day existence should be all we need to remind us.
They are there but for the taking.
Every day take hold of the common threads and rejoice.
