Wondrous Wednesdays: Ode to a Zipper

A little ditty for you to enjoy…

There is none so lovely

as a handpicked zip

laid and stitched

with barely a nip

of tiniest silk thread

floating atop

the basted-in zipper

of dress or top.

Oh marvels invisible,

modern you say?

Not my little stitches

that cover the fray;

not my controlled, careful,

neat, clean and fine,

silk measured stitches

in one perfect line!

Oh hand worked zipper!

you are a thrill–

I shall open and close you

with joy, yes! I will!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
