The Hawk West Desk Window 7:48pm

There Shimmers A Silver Sky

to thank Me for My smallest

of tasks — a sewing job

on My Husband’s pants

and the careful look

I took — lingeringly

at My Grandmother’s

needle book

with a yellow cover

and eight red wool pages

enclosed with a hand made clasp

to go inside

My Strawberry Painted

Sewing Box
