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.
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.
