threads of time present and past
seasons of change and memories cast
many a word to reveal
what is imagined what is real
many a page to unfold
a story a drama be told
labors and blessed fruit to bear
loving gifts of the Creator's care
a vision, a journey, with word kept known
by brush and paint, such knowing shown.
