I knit to stay sane
Fingers busy and my brain.
Stresses wash away.

I just have to knit!
Otherwise what would I do
With all of this yarn?

Transform a yarn ball
From blah to sock, sweater, shawl

Somewhere in Kabul,
a newborn wears my knitting.
It warms both of us.

Because snow-white sheep
have dreams of colorful knits.
Their wool made rainbow.

warm, colored line
something coming into being
it will be a surprise

I love to relax
While sitting and knitting socks

And lies, I can’t fabricate.

Here color, texture
intertwine; become anew.
I have created!

My hands they must be busy
My mind must wander
Knitting does let me ponder
