I know why she knitted
She was waiting,
Filling the empty spaces between being together

Needing something for her hands to do.
Something for her mind to concentrate on.
Something for the space between.

Some people knit,

Some write

Some eat

Some play video games

Some have pets

Some have kids

Some get lonely (or maybe all get lonely)

Some bake

Some travel

Some compost

And some go out to the barn to water the cows and feed the chickens

To fill the space in between

This is a practice, to Love in the space, to Love until

there is nothing in-between

to Love until we realize the space
was nothing and we are Love

      Thank you, Linda. Yes, I think so. I was thinking of my Great Grandma, Griselda, when I wrote it. Although she crocheted more than knitted.
