Tapestry

Tapestry

A Poem by Scott Christian
"

I wish that she'd be more direct and honest with me, instead of hiding in a shell.

"

The tapestry is perfect and woven
  The lines create pictures of exquisite value
 Through colour and still-life
    stories are told and etched
   into a soft letter--expositing
 ages


But I broke the loom that wove these fabrics,
 for the lines that once Cris-crossed
  are now parallel--lacking congruity
 Now I wish they would tell their stories
    straight, honest, and to the point

There is beauty in truth, but it is not always as lovely to look at until you have had time to process it. This poem provoked a lot of thought for me. I wonder about the broken loom, and what now? Is a weaver or story teller no longer such without a loom? I don't think so. Keep writing, I like this.

But I broke the loom that wove these fabrics,
for the lines that once Cris-crossed
do not represent unity anymore
And for once I wish they would tell their stories
straight, honest, and to the point


Very meaningful, that a tapestry is so perfect in its form, but one loose thread and it will unravel, the story left untold. I like the way you related it too a person, who is unable to show her story.
