The Cord

Whytecliff Park in Vancouver by Patrick Jennings.

That thin, golden cord.

Connecting this world to that.

Tenuous and fragile it be.


Stretching taut at times.

As it is strained and pulled.

That thin, golden cord.


Realities dancing and inspiring.

Looping between earth and heaven.

Connecting this world to that.


Light, though strong can fade

Nurturing love strengthens but

Tenuous and fragile it be.

Tenuous ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #70

Published by: writersdream9

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
