Threads of Continuity

In this time,
In these hands,
Drafts out the fibres,
Twists up the strands.

In a distant time,
In ancestral hands,
Twirled the spindle,
Let out the spans.

Those ancient ones,
Began the lines,
Spun long the yarns,
of lore and times.

Each young daughter,
Took up the tools,
Twisting tangled tufts,
Into ordered wools.

With warp and woof,
The sturdy wife,
Wove up the cloth,
Of a common life.

And when the plaid,
Was worn and rent,
It shrouded the elder,
Her time now spent.

The continuim unbroken,
Through ages and eons,
I take up the task,
Until the next generation.

...fighte fuaighte...
"woven into and through each other"

Very nice story of the older-generation handing down a tradition to the next genaration which weaves them or connects them altogether.


"There, in that hand, on that shoulder under that chin---all of its lightness delicately balanced and its strings skillfully bowed---it becomes a voice."---Rich Mullins

"At 18, if you have oversized aspirations, the whole world sees you as a dreamer. At 40, you get the reputation for being a visionary." ---Rich Mullins

"God gives the gifts where He finds the vessel empty enough to receive them."---C.S. Lewis

Éire go Brách!
