Winning Entry!

This is the poem which won First Place in the Maryland Writer's Association Short Works Contest, category Poetry:


It is a tapestry we weave between us
thread by argued thread,
pulling sometimes and later shuttling together
to lie beside inquietude
waiting for some new spun light
to illuminate our patterns.

Loom warped and roving draft
harnesses swaying attendance,
we take up our shuttles again
leaving our weft behind
in every word and in each stroking
