This work has reached the exceptional level
Loving the muffled moment


by amada

There is something intrinsically calm in a ball of yarn
Babies know it
Cats know it
I know it too...

The mundane and the meaningful undulating unbound
From a simple ball of yarn
A simple layer
Resounding abundance.

I like its weight on my body even in soaring steamy nights
Its wool wraps peace across my palms
And molds into my bones
In a gentle placid clasp

I like how it bends to the solace of each embrace
How it dances to each one my breaths
Threads that cradle me in
Bonding to my core like an extra layer of skin

I like the way it clasps the totality of who I am
It pauses me into the muffled moment
And cast dreams of pink springs
In wan winter nights.

And yet some people would say

it's just a piece of yarn!
