Sewing the hours of life

Sewing the hours of life


The humming needle ticks the hours

As soft rolls of multi-coloured fabric

Flow across floorboards

Like rainbows caressing the grain


The stitches make maps, tracks to follow

Seams to explore, zips to open and shut

And open again just to hear the sound


The foot lands with certainty then lifts to disembark

To make darts of warp and weft

The criss, cross zig zag of life


In this material world

Pin binds yoke

People pleated together

Until the spool winds the day

◄ Cryptic 9 down 1 across

Some great wording here Racheal.

All part of the rich tapestry of life.

A very enjoyable read.
