TYING ENDS – For D’Verse

Published December 12, 2019 by Nan Mykel

Think about it–all the ragged ends,

those threads undone and tromped upon,

the finished products cut asunder in despair,

those outgrown or cast aside, too big to fill;

quilt pieces dropped, forgotten,

to return in dreams, unfinished.

Forgive and be forgiven, hear and be heard

for the first and last time.

So many stubs, so many seines to throw

to capture them all.

How can one leave a life unfinished?

I never learned the art of tying ends.

  • The picture of leaving this world without finishing what I’ve set out to do, and discovering myself completely haunts me too. You’ve expressed that beautifully here. But, in the end, I reconcile myself with the thought that there’s beauty in imperfection.
