North American Dreaming: Spool Of Thread

A spool of thread in the right hands can do wonders, says William Burckholder in this well-woven poem.

Spool of thread;
Fabric line.

In the right hands,
It can do wonders.

Creating beauty,
Style.

People,
Friends,
Enemies,
Loved ones...

Stitched through time.
To weave our garments of life,
Our glories,
Our mistakes,

Love.
Heartache.
All piercing our heart
At some point.

Weaving our thoughts.
opinions,
Tailoring our hearts
To life's patterns,

Pinned in this,
In these, in those
Moments.

Where we rise from
lethargic mannequinisms,
Becoming animate in our resolve to love,
And be loved.

To take up the threads,
And sew life's vestment around us;

Creating soul's garment,
To weather life's storm.
