The Eclectic Seamstress

She was eccentric and nostalgic

using brown shipping paper to capture;

tape, pin, snip, her hands fled deftly

Her mind clicked for an imaginative purpose;

is it a sailboat? is it a pair of sails?

The sewing needles ran

at the speed of thought. Straight lines,

folded edges, crisp corners

Pressed and smoothed an image began

to stand out from among the rest,

is it a setting sun or rising moon?

The triangles filled with thought

and the spinnaker sails arose into

curtained cloths.
