   Look to yourself for help

A shuttle slips a loom, a bed.
Warps the breath of another thread.
A thread of life that weaves a web.
That ebbs the thoughts within your head.

A give and take, germane to bloom,
A product of your daily loom.
It sculptures all the bad and fair,
Whatever euphoria, it must wear.        

However the facts, however the change.
Depending on the size and range,
It adds each day a timely thread
And does this, until you are dead.

Beware the ways of thoughtless prowl.    
Weave it straight, don't go afoul.
Make a plan, do what you can,
Belief or no, in your fellow man?

There are some helpful hints in play,
The ten commandments offers a way.

Words of wisdom from a wise man! Well done, Seymour! As always, a pleasure!

And slight is the sting of his trouble
Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~

Sy,
You, my friend, in verse and rhyme
Say the very right thing at the very right time
And in your verse of tablet's course
Are the very best words from the very best source
Love ya,
Liz

The title caught my eye...I am finding for myself that the real strength lies in God and within myself...I was always searching outwardly for my truths when they dwell with God and within!!  Thank You for your wisdom!!  I am not sure where all of that came from but there it is!!!

Take Care

This brings to thought that the threads of "this" room
brought by each from their very loom
will never be far from the "web"
for altho gone, long will the words ebb.

Good work, Sy - I need to find more adjectives for you, Sir!

Can I say Amen, Sy?  The last two lines brought home a very powerful message.  Good poem.

He gives, he takes
One thing he always does
He loves, no matter what the purpose
A nice piece that you put down in ink


 The ability to describe life with words is similar to painting a picture; both can be powerful tools.

Seymour-

You are the master weaver of
wisdom, sir.

The weaver sits at His loom,
weaving the fabric of our life.
Never lovelier,
never stronger.
than the threads that
loom before us
and knit us together.

True words of wisdom, I think - and no matter a person's belief those commandments will always hold the truth for peaceful living.

Well done Sy!!!

What can I say, that has not already been said?  Your words ring true, and should be read by many.  Always a pleasure to read.

 May I never be too busy to help another's load,
Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
