COMMON THREAD

Overcast hearts
Sizing things up
Easing in slowly
Gathering courage

Sizing things up
Piecing patchwork views
Pinning seams to dreams

Easing in slowly
Releasing tension
Edging away from the fringe

Gathering courage
and facing the future
with the notion we walk not alone.

WALT’S EXAMPLE

WHEN LOVE COMES TO CALL

Opportunity has knocked,
the winds of change have blown.
But, a heart in flux can’t get enough
when love comes to call.

The winds of change have blown,
bringing something new to a life
that has waited for its coming.

But, a heart in flux can’t get enough.
It yearns for a touch, a caress,
a longing kiss to steer its course.

When love comes to call,
will your heart be willing and accepting to
a welcomed guest that might stay a lifetime?
