The Seamstresses

Each star's a stitch mending night
for the sky to wear to meet morning.

Morning's a stitch pulled tight,
ending night and making day.

My star  stitch, stitch, stitch
I wonder which stitch will scar

what I dream tonight.
I wonder who the seamstresses are.

I love the idea of secret seamstresses, Mama Zen, and paricularly enjoyed the lines:
'Morning's a stitch pulled tight,
ending night and making day.'

Your poetry always leaves me feeling deeply satisfied.
Thank you for that.

A stitch--such a tiny thing, yet you make them hold our different worlds together!

Clever! I adored it.

I like it, MomZ. It reminded me of the surgeon sewed the remaining skin on my nose together after the other surgeon finished with the Moh Surgery. He sure did mess my nose up.

Minds me of Grandmother spider stories.

I like the onomatopoeia of the stitch stitch stitch, and the final line is fantastic. I wonder, too.

I wonder - or maybe I know - what I've done and not done, so that the seamstresses don't weave me dreams to remember each night. ~
