SHAPING CREATION


Shaping Creation

Shaping Creation

Knitting in the round,

intricate shapes

embellish

nature’s doilies.

 

Nurturing hands,

aged

like air-washed glass

fondle

timeless determination.

 

Stitching day to night,

darkened figures

nod seamlessly

shivering

interchangeable designs.

 

Spirited exhaustion

springs awake-

a new day’s

colour.

    • Thank you, Tricia. This poem fell from my hand this morning so finding a pic was a bit of a chore.
      Happy you enjoyed it! 🙂

  1. Oh, Angela–this post so beautifully reminds me of the hands of my own grandmothers as they knitted and crocheted and sewed for the family. Thank you.

    • You are quite welcome, granbee. These are the hands of love – my mother ! She is 82 and will always be the brightest star in my world. So happy you enjoyed this ! 🙂
