Embroidered Dreams

Embroidered dreams pierce one long night,
Your silken floss pulled its invite,
Needles prick the small child in me,
Haunted by shadowed tapestry, 
Those knots you made of dark and light. 

I watch your hands, so pale and slight,
Lift and plunge with thin strands of white,
Before dawn breaks my heart I see
                                                Embroidered dreams

I sit at your feet, so contrite,
While frayed threads are tugged much too tight,
Each stitch that you left holds snugly,
But what you shaped longs to rip free,
All comes undone and now I write
                                                Embroidered dreams

    Ah, those verbs bring so much magic; fascinating to watch how you weave your words into a poem that casts its own spell. Love your limited rhyme that does a great job with repetitiion which adds so much. Appreciated your response to the "Emptiness" poem. Luv, Elizabeth
