Learning to Sew

Take the thread,

attach it to the needle,

push it gently through the garment,

to make what was torn apart

whole again.

Life arrives at our doorstep

in a tangled mess of threads,

we think we need to unravel the twisted knots,

but no--

just drop the bundle & start anew,

with a deep breath

& quiet mind.

Life can be a simple garment,

a cloth embroidered with colorful flowers,

the cluster of knots is but a distraction.

The wise seamstress

starts fresh--

a needle,

a thread,

a single knot to keep it steady,

& tranquility is restored.

Yes indeed it is a very therapeutic and reparative way of relaxing!

Lovely wording Hélène.
