demise

ball of yarn rolls into corner
tired and sad
it dislikes being drawn into patterns
against its will
in those it sees its demise
reflected in incandescent light

You make two totally different words, yarn and incandescent, a joy to roll together.

Bringing a ball of yarn to life...I love that. Thanks for playing along with the Sunday 160.

You can't create without destroying.

Poor ball of yarn. I'd always thought the yarn was thrilled to attain its destiny. Perhaps your yarn is blue.

Ouch!! Seriously, if a ball of yarn were to ever speak, this is probably what it would say! What a thoughtful 160, Gautami... so very creative!

Tammie said...

You gave life to a ball of yarn. Fantastic work

I love your image of the yarn being so very sad about being forced into something it isn't.

I think that Audrey has something there. New life in different form to be had.

That ball of yard reflects us
in the incandescent light. Very nice.

I feel that ball of yarn's sorrow--it doesn't have a say as to what it will be turned into. Not fair!

Creative, Gautami.

So know that feeling! Well said. Thank you.

hi gautami,

structure ,pattern, thought & outcome -

the way u approach poetry is probably not mathematical !

perhaps that is the power of the unknown

all the best with ur good work ..
