Poem: Basket Case

Weaving a basket takes time,
in and out,
out and in.
Fingers working the fiber,
back and forth,
forth and back.
Little rest in between,
up and down,
down and up.
Less time with food,
bite and swallow,
swallow and bite.
Moving basket to another place,
one and two,
two and one.
Overcome with many baskets,
vertical and horizontal,
horizontal and vertical,
There is always room for more,
worn and separated,
separated and worn.
