Spinning Haiku

fingers draft fibers
and connect to history
the simplest of tools

first is clumsiness
then with growing confidence
the craft becomes art

sneaky wood and hooks
spindles multiply at night
the collection grows

twist runs through fiber
like wildfire through dry grasses
long draw is magic

calculate budget
then fingertips touch the wool
now need more storage
