Treasure Island

Angela K Brown


Grandma's Hands


Her spewed
Weak
Tired
Poor
Hands
Stitc hed embroidered crocheted
Wary
Prudent
Nuzzled
Yarn string thread
Carefully
Weaved
Knitted
Sewn
Rea ttached
Through loops
Patterns
Shapes
Scraps of cloth
Pieced
Matched
Sorted
Through secrets
Customs
Heritage
A quilt
A blanket
An afghan
Her sacred hands
Emanated a cultural tradition
