Moments to memories to threads
Words to actions to stitches
Waking to living to weaving
Sometimes choosing the colors carefully
Often creating the patterns randomly
Occasionally patches are garish
clashing in ways unforeseen
Work in new threads
Knit a healing
Sew a new future
Don't pull to unravel
for what looks garish before
can come to glow later
Let the design expand
and warm you
till it's time to set down the needles
and pick up the scissors
