This Thread, These Crumbs

I want to explain

how it feels –

it seems to me

that my life is held


by an unseen thread,

a shimmering strand

of gossamer, perhaps.

And as I pass through each

moment in time and space

I am forever looking for signs

of its Presence.

Like Hansel and Gretel

I walk hunched over,

peering through each day,

seeking, searching

for those elusive crumbs

that lead through

these dark woods

toward Home.
