Silken Threats

Bayeux Tapestry

A frayed charade is sewn into a bitter tapestry – woven
and spun by the spider that has won a trophy of tarnished silver
not gold, without triumph to hold in its stare – it is fully aware
of the tatters of human nature.

Errors taught to us get snagged and caught on rusted,
double edged swords adorned with faux pearls of wisdom that
are our tears, and which seep into wounds with each infliction
until infection charts its course.

We need only wield a thimble of armour against the monumental
travesties we sew; the deeds of mankind embroidered on life’s
fine fabrics cause dour, interlocking souls to mock our disdain,
misery and pain when we prick ourselves and bleed.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
