Forbidden Stitch

me but 1a
Forbidden Stitch

These inlaid patterns, whether tesserae or broderie
Are home to thoughts, to wishes, dreams
Late fragments disintegrate in time, the base net rots
Leaving the winding  lacis peony behind

Such are white flowers hung in racemes
Scenting blue air  naked as a white doll
Mending ancient lace, blind to tears
She sews a fine seam
Red hearted peaches
For Nowhere’s trousseau
Blurring brokenhearts
In  silken tender cream…

Texiile ‘ Me, but on a Good Day’.   Embroidery Veronica Aldous
