Our words interwoven
The closing of distance

And now a brocade
In the making

Image lacing through image

Meanings stitched into the
Fabric of our souls

All the soft and curious instincts
Rendered into a secret language

That cannot be hidden from the world
Like a Jewish boy and Arab girl

Bonding across battle-lines
Their story turned into a novel

      1. I think verse is particularly special when it evokes a warmth and longing deep down inside. “Needlecraft” did exactly that. Really good work!
