Crochet Sister

The next few posts will be an attempt to salvage items from my website, which with the closing of Geocities, will disappear next month.

Today's post is a poem written several years ago about the feeling of "sisterhood" (brothers welcome) among crocheters--around the world and throughout time.

"Crochet Sister"

She holds her hook just like me,
yarn passing through her hands.
She is very close to me
though perhaps in a distant land.

Yarn over, insert hook,
is she using blue or red?
Is her pattern in a book,
or a memory in her head?

Does she spin her own wool
from sheep she grazes on the hills?
Does she create for pleasure,
or crochet to pay the bills?

I don't know, we've never met,
perhaps we will some day;
and I'm sure I'll recognize her..
my "sister in crochet".
