Now that’s extremely evocative for anyone of a certain age – beautifully-crafted and emotionally adroit. One of your best!
Thank you, Geoffrey. I was thinking how quickly the art of mending has disappeared, and then this haiku appeared! Neither of my daughters were taught how to sew at school (at home they were), on the basis that they would be doing ‘more important things’ with their lives…
Aye, much the same here, at least with my youngest girl. But I suppose they live in a society where clothes are so cheap you just chuck them away? My mother would always sit there in the evening, often with the darning mushroom – I wonder if youngsters today would even know what one was? Any way, thank you for this nostalgic piece 🙂
