Stitching in Time

Stitching in Time’ (Oil painting on board by Alan Rayner, 2020)

Every moment is a turning point

In ever-present current

Carrying life across the gaps

In human memory

From future into past

Without a pause for thought

Yet dancing in the Stillness

The play of light in void

That brings relief to form

Flowing here and there in rhythms

Receiving and responding

In continuous relay

Throughout the day

Throughout the night

From season into season

Without the need for reason

To divide, make whole or keep to straight and narrow

Only dying to pass on
