Pockets & Poems

Every weaving comes with a secret rear pocket –

you might consider it just like a locket.

It sits on the back, hidden from view –

you can decide if it’s just for you.

Veiled inside are secret words,

that came to me as I wove, squawking like birds.

Sometimes the fabrics beckoned the verse,

and sometimes it happens in the exact reverse.

Without hesitation, I wrote them down –

to add a layer to the piece, like the placing of a crown.

They don’t always rhyme, sometimes they sing, 

but they are a gift for you…they’re just the thing.
