The Loom

sunset Sask Landing


With shuddering of shuttle,

the warp meets the weft – Autumn’s

art in sunset tapestry.


Rhythmic cycle weaves copper

to crimson, scarlet to gold,

pattern passed down from ancient


hands. Loose threads are expertly

battened, strung between starry-

crisp nights and harvest-filled days


building texture as leaves (and

cloth) are shed, Autumn’s nimble

fingers flying to keep up.
