Tenuous


connections
formed of slender threads
stretched to capacity
introducing one hand to another

most days
supple and strong
woven through with
hardier threads of
ideas hope and hints of love

other days
the threads fray
and separate
threatening to break
this connection

tenuous, at best

and so,
a choice must be made
to repair the threads
and strengthen the bond
or sever the ties

I choose
