Feed Sack Dresses

A combination of Haiku and Kyoka

designer originals
from feed sacks
after the chickens were fed

her artist's touch
honed with the aid
of her foot movement
on the treadle machine

Actually, my mother was not much of a seamstress. But, she did everything else so well, I stepped in at 14, and learned to sew in self defense. After that, I even made her dresses. But she made quilts, and, in spite of the fact that she grew almost everything we ate, she set an excellent table. We never went hungry!
