30 in 30, day ten

sept 2017 30-30This poem was inspired by the friends and family I know who keep this intricate handcraft alive.

Tatted

made of lace, this heart is delicate
but not fragile: strong knots and stout string
bind it to itself, to generations
of hands with shuttles and dreams
drawn in tight loops against
hardship and despair
