the quilted woman

she gathers up remnants,
she weaves together words and fibre,
she
a kind of mosaic -
a tapestry
of the past,
gently moves
and all around her
the sound of swishing fabric,
rustle of long dark hair,
and quiet hum of folklore at her lips.

  2. Oh sweet snow white,
    You encourage me so. Not only in the specifics of this drawing and words, but also in the deliberate time you've taken to retain yourself as an artist and not completely succumb to a one-note identity as a mother (as tempting and easy as it would be to do so).

    I was thinking only just last night that I hadn't seen a post in a while. I like to think that my longing for your presence in my life flew over the ocean to reach you.

    But its been more word-focused lately.....
