A Creation Story

The rug was fashioned

by hands so skilled

they could weave a tapestry of stars

with just a thread of light;

they could stitch together an island

with a single strand of silk;

they could unfurl a ball of yarn

and raise up a meadow of wildflowers;

they could make a poor man feel rich 

when he pads, barefoot,

across his living room floor.
