Everything Ordered – v2

Everything is ordered
intricate, sublime,
yet everything is sensitive
to your choice and mine.

The world, all of creation,
is in the tapestry, the web of life.
There are tremors, rips, tears,
when any thread is pulled.

Consequences, effects,
ripples, large and small,
are often at first unperceived.
Choices each of us make
change a future yet unseen.
