The Tailor

 photo stitches_zpsf50cbf13.jpg

this morning the
black sky
            falls    
                        down
in tiny pearls and
she
takes the flowers
from her hair and
            picks
                        out
the threads that
bind
her heart to
yours so that you
            can      
                        remake
her—one painful
stitch at a time.

    Hi Laura
    Just like a beautiful embroidery, we only feel the prick of the needle at the bottom, but He sees the beautiful picture He is creating!
    Much love
    Mia

    Really captures the experience of painful renewal… sometimes I wish He would hurry it up a bit though… thank you for this poem.
