Her Life as Woven Lace
Julie A. Olson
It’s there woven by time on her face.
The intricate design
Each seam painstakingly stitched
as in a piece of artistic
hand-woven Spanish Lace.
The beauty in the piece she holds
has long lost precision
Retrospection of life,
disentangled from emotion,
has worked loose
it’s intricate thread.
Recollections are all interlaced,
with those she loves
Relationships unraveled, repaired.
by the Creator’s original design.
These textures of living are hers.
All the joys, laughter,
Abrupt lines yield-
sway and twirl
The cogent angle of clarity now curves.
