Thread of Thoughts

Thread of Thoughts

A Poem by Keagen Cole
"

This poem is based on a recent experience I had during home ec. class, where I got bored (I'm not much of a social person) and sewed some thread on the end of my jacket sleeve. I just find it calming

"
When I lay in the swaying grass
refraining from my social needs,
I wield a spool of thread
with the hued yellow
 of a Californian lemon,
and a small needle,
easily piercing and pulling
with the guide of my hands.

Along the end of my sleeve
I sew loops along the rim
feeling the assuring halcyon
accompanied with aging reveries.
A door forms within my sight
as an entrance to a path untrodden;
Wherever I thread, the door follows.

It is one that my kin seldom find,
just off of the land we tread.
It is insight,
wonder,
variance,
internal serenity,
and a serenade of the mavericks
who perform for the door of thread and fabric.

The spool I hold,
adorned with the aged reveries
and broken hopes,
is wound comfortingly with
my thread of thoughts;
along the stitches I sew,
I reveal the other side of my leaf.

Secretly, my spirit will be wilting.

I relate to this thusly.
For years I and my folks seemed at an impasse...I tried to convince them I was doing fine where I was and what I was doing. They disagreed...the spirit did wilt...in later years we came to an agreement and things settled...the spirit compromised some...but only some...
My spool I hold now, creates threads of memories...and I would never throw this spool away...it is too precious...because it helps to sew where I am now into something I want to keep.
thanks for this write...poetry that stimulates me to identify....that floats my boat immensely.
I think when readers can read themselves into poetry, regardless of the inspiration for the write, certainly creates a back and forth between poet and reader.

Thanks. :3
Hellos, Dear, Keagen Cole,
I refrain so to say, that the poop was symbolic.
The lemons, the grass, away from social.
I like that. Then the rendering of a dreamless psychologist,
I love the whole involving poem. ---1809 Black Plague December
