To take something whole,
cut it into shapes,
move them around for a few
minutes, or for a few hours,
or for a few days or months,
and to put it together
to create a brand new

that delights me,

To have a bit of control
in the midst of a mighty
and powerful world
where most everything else
is entirely out of my hands,

Rotary cutter
rulers in an assortment
of sizes and shapes
threads and beads
at the ready,
a bountiful collection
to choose from,
I climb out of my brooding abyss
surrender frustration
deny fear
and allow the hum
of my sewing machine
to mend the gaping
holes in my heart.
