This Thread, These Crumbs

I want to explain
how it feels -
it seems to me
that my life is held
by an unseen thread,
a shimmering strand
of gossamer, perhaps.

And as I pass through each
moment in time and space
I am forever looking for signs
of its Presence.

Like Hansel and Gretel
I walk hunched over,
peering through each day,
seeking, searching
for those elusive crumbs
that lead through
these dark woods
toward Home.
