Threaded In

have you ever seen
how the world is tied to you
with strings spun together
of memory, anger, hopes
and other things
vibrating like a violin sings
making constant melody
sweetly humming beauty
and dissonance according
to the variance of life itself

are we pulled or pushed—
dragging along all our lives
or draped like limp puppets?

and i can barely see
the strings ending
(does it reach beyond the years?)
and i can scarcely hope its finding
(though i shed its tears)
and beyond it’s my reminding
(can i never know it here?)
yet i'm wondering
and finding…

if it’s You that threads me in.
