Unravel an opening


It is a continual process to unweave
that which is truth from story. I pull

a thread, remove one line, observe how
the fabric changes, notice the new spaces

breathing between essential threads
that remain, a skeleton of existence

until tweezing out the unneeded
leaves what is left, sparsely resilient

penetrable light of a future once blocked
by memories tightly woven.

  1. thanks for the blog visit – this is a real treat finding such excellent poetry here

    “until tweezing out the unneeded leaves”

    the whole poem is so slowly paced that it becomes a meditation on unpiecing to find peace. Brilliant Ali!

  2. Oh wow. Ali this is exquisite. What a mystical sharing of the healing and clarity that come with removing limited beliefs and hurts from old memories. God, I am so touched. Thank you for sharing this for #ForgivingFridays – it is a perfect creative contribution to illustrate how forgiveness can help us to see “the sparse yet strong penetrable light of a future once blocked”!!

    Much loving to you my friend. Your writing is beautiful.
