soul mates

This poem is inspired by my wife, who loves to do counted-cross stitch sewing.



Color me green


That is the best color


And to be colored by you


Would be bliss



Upon the tapestry

You so lovingly stitch


I would be the beloved


Focal point of your affection



Swirling in hues of green…


Of living green


Stitched from your heart


Upon the cloth



Wrought with keen attention


To the detail of the moment


And satisfying some urge


To create the passion



Vigorously flying upon

The cloth like a guided-missile


Intently fiery


And falling upon its prey



Locked in mortal conflict to explode


And wrest order from chaos


Beauty from blankness


Green from white
