I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Monday Muse

Here is the second poem which I promised:

Maggie

Quietly working
shy smile
Carefully transcribing
letter for letter
word for word
sentence for sentence
from storybook to copy
until page for page
they match.

Beautiful work
conscientious student
engrossed in rhythm
curve by stroke
fullbellied to stark line
the pattern a written sampler
worked by Maggie the traveller.

I really love this one! And thank you so much for your comment, it's really nice to have some moral support! And now I'm going to read your other posts I haven't read due to my crrrazy schedule. Take care!
