Crochet me a closet

It reflects the story of my life… LoL ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie

Buckets on a Barefoot Beach


I keep looking for that closet

where

all the strands

of my life

are wound into neat balls,

waiting to be knitโ€“

tidy patterns on shelves

and yellow and green skeins

and every assorted thing

crochet hooks,

and needles in a cushion

and pinned decisions

laid out as neat as

freshly-fallen snow angels

wearing home-made sweatersโ€ฆ

only to find

the door ajar,

buttons askance

and cross eyed tomcats

laying drunkenly next to a pair of hockey sticks

misplaced in a field of catnip

Darn it!

Where are my socks?

Somewhere, I suppose,

behind rose-painted thimbles

which hold enough lace and grace and strawberry wine

to sew me

a picnic in summertime

    • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas & happily peaceful New Year too, dear Anna โค Thank you for all your encouragement! You are always a blessing, to me ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’โœ
      Speaking of closets… You know those cartoon closets where the door opens and everything spills out? That's what my knitting's like… LoL… Hubby says I've a pile of yarn/knitting in every room of the house. An exaggeration, of course, but my knit-magination's gotta roam free… so I'm working on it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ’œ Jackie@KWH
