ripples in the weave

red panther in the black of night
eyes the colour of fire
jaguar in the pillared jungle
mucking in the mire
both aware
both believe
the ripples in the weave
changes in the pattern
thick becoming thin
peripheral visions
occuring within
iris of the deluge
pupil of the way
all that seek it’s refuge
lose the light of day
fear ensnares the course
time is not the key
forged in tarnished chains
on the anvil of remorse
celebratory petals
unfurl to receive
the promise in the echoes
the ripples in the weave
