Weavers Words


Elevator pairing, eyes lock

Metal door finality

Weather remark, whether to

Shoelace study forms a

Knotted dissertation

Sharing only a cabled count

Hiccup stop, sonic pause

Suspended departure, one by one

— Kirstie Jones

What If

So, I ask myself,

What if the birds stop singing?

Will life still go on?

— Frank Hollick

Rising Tide

Like sand moving through the hourglass,
Many hands daily work essential tasks.

Though I’m lucky to hear the roar of the shore;
It’s a fortnight spent with a sense of discontent.

We enjoy extra leisure, yet feel this real unrest.
So while we’re stuck in our neat nests, let’s be productive pests!

Be proud you spoke up, gave donations, marched were bold’n brave!
If you love the U.S., vote for change and catch this blue wave.

— Mary L. Nolans
