the quilt of life:

            work threads craft

                        (for handmade women)

 

work and mendings:

            the Mrs. inspired –

                        quilt life.



this strange embroidering

 

lost rivers and

threads of belonging

sing pleasure,

a language of being.

 

this tongue,

this name,

this strange embroidering –

 

everyday love

and a stitching of longing.



threads of knowing

 

unexpected oceans

of handmade waves

carried dark thinking with light

 

carried water

carried politics

carried law –

 

the embroidery of trouble

 

dark cloth

new life

across threads of knowing.
