life's tapestry

All my colors run,
bleed together
like a fine madras
the Fates have spun.
Clotho, Lachesis, Atropos
have woven faded hues of long ago,
pale threads I cannot follow.
Yet in amongst the warp and weft
lie knots of bright embroidery
where the Moirae gifted me with grace
and needled me in to mystery.
