Islands of existence


Like an island chain-
An archipelago
Are we islands of existence?
Do our minds separate-
Compartmentalise?
Hold onto secrets of the past
Sailing to when we’re adrift?
Memories we return to
Like favoured holidays past?
Ferry crossings back and forth
Until we leave for good?
Or strands we take with us on our journey;
Connections, patterns,identities
Drawn through time and space
Threads of gossamer tracing the stars
In laminar flow;
Those we love
Those we meet
Those we pass
A twinkling light
A warning flare
Perchance we cross
Or is it so?
The chart etched out in perfect ordinance
Each choice is ours
Each decision
Freely given
To navigate those paths
With love.
