The Thread Runs Through My Life

The Thread Runs Through My Life

A thread is to a hem
As keyboard to computer.
In-put device.

A thread is to a needle
As rich man climbing into Heaven.
Slim chance!

A thread is to a tear
As tape is to a wire.
Bonding.

A thread is to a fabric
As blood is to the human.
Running through!

A thread is to the button
As handle to the gun.
Holds steady.

A thread is to the garment
As redemption to the Bible.
Woven through.

A thread is to the poem
As twinkles to a star.
Integral.
