Writer’s Tapestry 

I am a writer’s tapestry

Weaving all experiences, feelings, encounters.

Choosing, finding, being shown words, phrases, sentences

Creating images of stories, poetry, essays, and books

To delight, define, confront, and comfort myself and my readers.

 Adapted from

Tapestry of a Woman

by Yvonne Kaye

I am an emotional tapestry, created by the gifts of silken feelings

From those who have entered my life

And enriched it.


My core is formed from encounters with people

Who have loved me enough

To rearrange my thoughts

 And show them to me.


I have learned from all those

Who have passed my way,

Experiences of all kinds,

Positive, negative, passionate, serene, happy, funny, sad.

None are wasted.
