One Loose Thread

the wee bird

kept her eye on the loose thread

it wasn't often she revealed to anyone

even the smallest of her unravelings

. . . . . . . . . . . .

Will you not open your heart to know

what rainbows teach, and sunsets show?

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Hope the blues fly away soon. I'm so glad my music makes you feel better.

  2. And from the threads of our heart's unravelings, beautiful sweaters can be made to cover others with the warm compassion of our experience. Beautiful picture and words, Jenny. I love Emerson's quote. He was a man of great insight.

  3. Thanks for answering about the interpretation I made of the halo. I believe we (women) have loose threads that no one knows about but us, but there's an extra strong super thread that mends all holes and tears... our children's love.
    I have to say that the fish is sooooo handsomely cute. I really like how men look in turtle necks and that fish looks like even the fishy smell on him went away!
