Did You Know ... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

A Palestinian Thobe

Did you know
when your fingers fumbled with the fabric
and your mind played with the design
Did you know
as you stitched and pulled
the threads
Did you know
as you danced with color
and shape
rhyming patterns
to repeat
close to her heart...
your heart
mother daughter sister aunt
Did you know
how long
this art would last
& how much it would be shared.
