Threads

I often sit and watch my wife Make random threads take on new life With tiny stitches placed just so Transform cloth to a tableau Small bags of floss sit by her side Into single strands divide Kaleidoscope of rainbow hues Subtle color patterns fuse Shades and shapes like magic form Some colors bright while others warm I marvel at the skill she wields The finished product that it yields The detail wrought into each piece Makes my awe for her increase That she can create and imbed Such beauty starting with one thread

    Thanks for noticing Gwen. Actually, I've been working on a short story which I completed and posted on another site to test the waters.

    a different type of poetry, at home there with Bob Quigley, the artists brush , the play on words, the finest threads you ever heard, Mrs Quigley's passion, does serve, another thread to fashion...

This poem is well deserving of a win and you should be proud of it. I enjoyed this poem very much. Thanks for sharing it....Keep writing and I'll keep reading. Well done, my friend..........S.Ronthorpe
