A Poem from Janet Cannon's  Poetry Room at IsleWrite.com

the weaver

keeping perfect cadence
with the cosmos she
weaves each section of
her vision into a rhythm

of rainbow values that
evolve into a landscape
art scene on a loom framed
with tenacity appears a

textile painting that mirrors
nature with simple clouds
high in the sky above
complex mountains below

vivid valleys of dyed raw
wool the sheep give freely
and unknowingly contributing
to her insatiable passion
