Ghost Writing

"Ghost Writing" 18"w x 16"l, compost dyed cotton with appliqued vintage laces. Hand and machine embroidery, reverse applique, beading, faced holes  (pink for display background only)

 

 

a ghost had sat, wherever ghosts sit,
in the dark and fust and silence, and silently
embroidered old letters
words
looked like they had run in the rain ———
and patched and beaded holes, burnt and torn and worn,
she he? pulled laces from old trousseaus and
unstrung beads
unravelled threads with no form left, a whisper of the silk,

a memory of shine still in the twilight

sussuration of bone needle and tiny mouseclick stitch
