Summer Sonnet 9: The Loom

Tension builds and wefts the warped. Interweave
the brazen threads. She pays mind to the technique
with her exhausted hands. A suggestive
cloth is emergent like a picturesque

Representation of passion and blood.
Immense in size; a Dionysian
Event with rapturous and eager buds
Blossoming impatient in utopian

Unison. Absolute in its color,
each chosen for their rich complexity.
One last weave in a wavering fervor
Completes the act of spontaneity.

As she finishes the quilt with one last take
she let out a flushed and tremulous shake.

- By Donavue
