Create the Meaning of Today

 wicker basket heart to fill with meaning

In the footsteps of yesterday

create the meaning of today

Pull the strands of fabric

long forgotten

but able

and wanting

to be mended again

anew

alight

The air is the tapestry

The clouds

ironed hot

on the searing, arcing canvas

Emblazon them on your eyelids

Hold them like you would a friend

you let go of too soon

It’s up to you

The meaning’s there

The choice is yours

Hope

and it’s lost

Act

and it’s found

It’s the next action

it’s the next breath

Discard your inaction

But leave this space

And fill it with meaning
