Frame of Reference

Written by: Anna Lee Stedman

                                             our lives
                                        are woven into
                                a picture of where we live
                              walking history through time
                          births and deaths ricochet through
                             words and voices coloring each
                       thread tinting the boldness of its tone 
               life and breath are the warp and weft of its fabric
    the rhythm of the flying shuttle mirrors the beating of my heart
                and meters the momentum of this living tapestry
