Artless and aged, a comfort, a frayed rag,

This woman is woven of many yarns,

Aware of life’s hazards, each sudden snag,

Pondering losses that will not be darned,

Enraptured, though, by what some dare not see,

Seams in the sunshine, the twining of night,

There, fabric of what was and what could be,

Revealed by silk strands to my spun delight.

Y ears have softened me; I am less but more,

W hat was bright and brash is muted and spent,

O ld tales held by pulled threads, my token lore,

M oments sweetly stitched, forever content. 

A heart’s history that love still spans, 

Never to fade, a tapestry woman.

    Y ears have softened me; I am less but more, Let me say Cyndi - For some crazy reason I usually hate poems with the word "tapestry." Well I can kiss that idea goodbye. Yours is special beyond special. I absolutely love it. love, Kathy

    This is really beautiful! I'm so glad she's not going to disqualify you! In fact, it makes me rethink my own that I wrote but haven't posted yet. yours is much better. I wish i had thought of it! i like how you 'wove' the stitching words into this :) p.s. soupmail

    I think you can ONLY use the word TAPESTRY..better check..let me know too? I wrote a poem for you called Pared Pairings!! Your verse about crying in the storm mused it to me! Light & Love
