Love Knots

Her wares are carefully spread
The colorful scarves
Waving their welcome
In the humid breeze

Her fingers fly
In practiced rhythm
The yarn unfurls
With her tug

Another scarf
Taking shape
In the puddle of rainbow hues
At her feet

They come
Hands rifling
They choose
Her love will now
Hug another
She sighs
Satisfied.


OOPS.  I've had this up all day with no credit to the meme host.  Sorry about that g-man.  This is a Flash Friday 55.  If you'd like to try this, give it a whirl, then visit the g-man and tell him about it, putting your link in the comment.

That is lovely, Tina. Well done. I can see the beautiful scarves, though buying one in a "humid breeze" probably wouldn't occur to me.

yes. the humid breeze threw me off too. i was talking knitting with a novice knitter and admitted that i can't bring myself to touch it during the summer.

lovely prose.

I am so definitely going to have to try this but keep forgetting about it. Great 55 again Tina, you have a wonderful ability to capture so very much in so very few words, a talent I have yet to master :-)

I think I'm the novice knitter Pure Joy mention. Yes, I'm learning, and yes I love it. Starting something new on Monday, with my "knitting sensei's" help.

This was beautiful.

Awww, this is sweet.
It reminds me of my mother, who loves doing arts and crafts (including knitting) and sells many of these projects in her salon.

Very nice.
And exactly 55! :)

Thanks for visiting the Jannaverse!
