“Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives and some weave gold thread. Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.”


Between the threads of reality
and threads of our vivid dreams
we weave our fabric of life
embellish it with our achievements
flaunting around with pride
and we don’t want any stains on it
we want it pristine and pure
draped in the gossamer of our desires
we just want to live
one day more
But as the time flies
the fabric is tugged and pulled part
at the edges
and seams are coming out
no matter how much you save it
how much you avoid
there are people who will
weave love and passion on it
the silky smooth touch
a touch of the cashmere
mixed with works of filigree
which wraps our souls
and gives it meaning
But my love,
don’t you ever forget
there are some who
will leave an impression
resurrect and infuse your soul
when they embrace you with the
burlap of their life
a touch of their own.

  2. Love this, so much. Such a great reminder of how all we do and all we meet along the way adds to, takes away, tears and repairs our burlap.

      1. You are welcome. I could tell because it’s one of the most beautiful pieces you have written. I’ve written a lot about weaving,, sewing, stitching, mending – it’s a common thread (pun intended) among poets.

  3. One of my favorite writes, heavy with the type of metaphor that stings and causes the heart to sing. “Gossamer” and “filigree” are such fabulous words ❤ Utterly satisfied with this 🙂
