satin
needles
and
plenty of
hours
shimmering
changing
the
light
hidden in garages
in
forgotten
cupboards
and drawers
pink pearl silver
and
white
I remember
my grandfather
stitching sequins
onto
tutus
many years
ago

    The Making of Fond Memories

    Kim, I love the painting and the poem. Only a ballerina could paint one so well.

    Great title Boyd !!!!
    I have many memories of my ballet "past"....and this poem reflects a particularly fond memory of us on the Eisteddfod "road" and the image of my Grandfather ....(sewing the tiny sequins on to our tutus).....is still imprinted in my mind.....
    thank you for your comment :)
