This is the galvanizing poem for my new book in progress. Prospective publishing date end of 2019.
Fabulous and phenomenal fibers
Art is all around
Love is in their looms
Why rugs can enchant one heart and have no effect on another?
The gift is vision.
If you can see the hidden world, the rugs can tell the story,
A thousand stories.
A life in every knot.
Love in every warp and weft.
A love that endures time the history of the past, the present and the future
Woven by hand.
Is that why the fates are described as spinning the yarn of our destinies?
Every knot is measured even before we are born!
