knit

we are knit together in secret,
in our mothers' wombs
we are knit, far from prying eyes
and yet not hidden from
the one who does the knitting
so skillfully are we fashioned
no two ever alike, yet all the same
in the ways that matter most
each bearing our maker's mark

That is just amazing. I love the piece and the prayer with it. Really moving and poignant. I may have to add this one to my list of go to prayers!

These are all so beautiful! This one resonates for me. I'm a fibre artist and missing my mom right now. She painted or drew mandalas in the months before her death from cancer 30 years ago. I wish that I knew more about them and was in a place where I could have learnt about what she was looking for with them.
