Threads Of Time...

Threads of Time...

we gave a cry and all rejoiced for this our birth complete
we are our first steps greeted with open arms
our first word that brought an admiring smile...

trace the years and their memories await anew
a montage, a kaleidoscope, of one's life view

sounds, impressions, of place time and moments sweet
where our dreams and our days come to meet
praise, punishment, joy and pain come to define
a life known as rightly yours, a life lived as mine
and what brings reason to pause this very day
but the wondrous Creation given by Life along its way
a sculpture unveiled and all in AWE and PRAISE
for what each has brought to their ennobled days
and then a painting, a poem, an endearing embrace
upon a time line of memories now they to place
decades of moons have brought mystery and delight
magical be this waxing and waning of Creation's light
and so this heart, this soul, in time's grasp and claim
be held in the spirit and glory of our Creator's name
be it of yesterdays or days yet, and dreams enfold
each new gaze, a breath, a sigh, be this our story told
with threads of time Life's cloak we weave
let it BE the warp and weft of Divinity conceived.

Albrecht Dürer, German,  21 May 1471 – 6 April 1528, Self-portrait silverpoint drawing by the thirteen-year-old Dürer, 1484, Albertina, Vienna.

"Albrecht Dürer (German: [ˈalbʁɛçt ˈdyːʁɐ]; 21 May 1471 – 6 April 1528) was a German painter,  engraver,  printmaker, mathematician, and theorist from Nuremberg. His high-quality woodcuts,  nowadays often called Meisterstiche or "master prints, " established his reputation and influence across Europe when he was still in his twenties,  and he has been conventionally regarded as the greatest artist of the Northern Renaissance ever since. "ürer
