i may know somethings
knitters know,
after a fashion.
acknowledging a vision,
bringing it to warming
life, in which a color hungry
world is sated by
the beauty they create.
i understand the focus
required to lay out
pulsing patterns,
zen-like repetitions,
incorporating everything
they know and learn,
into the joys of creating
for themselves and others,
willing to open their lives,
enough to let inspiration
stitch the soul.
