Weaving Dreams (Pantoum)

Yesha Shah

I sit in a corner weaving dreams
picking up the stitch where I’d left unfinished,
the criss-cross knots give a soothing texture
little ups and downs in the fabric of life.

Picking up the stitch where I’d left unfinished
I never did let go of the hope to complete;
the little ups and downs in the fabric of life,
moulding grainy patches into a wholesome part.

I never did let go of the hope to complete.
Even as I was making a clay statuette
moulding the grainy patches into a wholesome part,
just then there was a heavy downpour.

Even then I was making clay statuette
it was meant to be me, carving my destiny,
just then there was a heavy downpour;

and it all flowed down to a muddy puddle.

It was meant to be me, carving my destiny. 
I chastise myself for not shielding wispy wishes
and it all flowed down to a muddy puddle,
colours of life bleed through amber eyes.

I chastise myself for not shielding wispy wishes
A gust of wind floated them away
colours of life bleed through amber eyes
Rainbow streaks of a wistful dream.

A gust of wind floated them away,
I begin again to brighten my hues, vivid,
 rainbow streaks of a wistful dream,
essence of its presence lingers long after its gone.

I begin again to brighten my hues, vivid,
the criss-cross knots give a soothing texture
essence of its presence lingers long after its gone
I sit in a corner weaving dreams!
