 Tapestry


They wanted the work to illustrate their lives,

the rich tapestry of the lives they lived.

They chose the colours carefully

sometimes rich and vibrant,

sometimes dark

just like life.

They wove them into zig zag patterns

up and down,

up and down.

They thought it seemed true,

true to life.

They wove the cloth longer

longer and longer

used all the warp

and reached the end.

It seemed true,

true to life.
