The Craft of Poetry
|Love's Fire: Sonnet 154, 2024
Carefully selected words
beaded with emotion
stitched into verse. Tangled histories
twisted and knotted for generations
to debate. Beneath hidden layers of symbolism
we still question the threads. Glistening
the edits fade
only the foundation shines. Fourteen lines
some angled, some curved.
The straight ones come to a dead
The needle has made the final mark.
My thoughts as I worked on this quilt, Love's Fire: Sonnet 154, during the month of January 2024.
