A Link in Time

From lands and seas that I shall never know,
complex roads have merged their path to me.
Translucent threads of ancient lives before
interwove this web which is my pedigree.

Cultures of many nations formed the loom,
and laced the strands of fiber to evolve
a potpourri of souls who braved the path
of destiny with passion and resolve.

And now this fertile ribbon which I weave
a plait to braid and join the next in line;
people and histories which I may only dream
may know about this link in time that’s mine.
