a taste of THE MUSIC
“One day you will meet
the person you were meant to be”
I could barely hold a needle
when she said this to me.
She was a bloody rock my mum, solid.
Grounding as she guided me through life
I loved watching my mum pulling things apart
to make something new for us.
She loved to sing and often did. As she snipped and sewed
Soft sounds of a seamstress accessorising gentle song.
And she was wise, bursting at the seams
with advice and worldly knowledge.
“Comparison is the thief of joy” she declared to her
audience of myself and 100 scraps of fabric.
“Ignore what the others think,” she added.
She said it in many different ways.
For a while I listened to her advice,
until cutting remarks were whispered,
slicing through me like her scissors.
As her words came back to me
I picked up the loose threads from before,
joining them together, and
it was like breathing fresh air.
