“Unraveling external selves and coming home to our real identity is the true meaning of soul work.” Sue Monk Kidd

What Happens Now?

That jumper had a long run,
it was one of my favourites,
holding so many moments,
both fond and not so,
a talisman to hold life
by the stitches of memory,
a safe-keep of everything
held dear until today
when it snagged and
began to unravel,
I wondered how life
would now be.

  1. I’d say darn that sweater to keep it from unraveling any further. 😉


  2. I do think at this stage the sweater can be fixed. Life should be that easy!!


  3. Such a great poem – yes so true of life too


  4. It truly is a moment of wonder when the old unravels. It’s a time to welcome the new while getting to know all that we possess.
