Shining threads

Shining threads

Sunday, 1 June 2014


The top falls.
The first flutters gather
momentum and weight.

There is no wait.
There is no pause.

Snowballs seem small
and every avalanche begins
with a few flakes.

Vulnerability is subtle strength
which moves mountains.

The top seems insubstantial
yet the effects
are monumental.

Don't dismiss the movements
of a few flakes.

Things gain weight
and soon there will be no wait.

Join the accumulation.
Or be crushed.
