Tainted Hues

Grip the needle between your teeth
a deluge of rainbow thread beckons
all proclaiming the perfect match,
say not a word nor move your tongue
lest you paint red their sunny views.

I had the sense of someone biting their tongue..intent on their sewing - real or not - complex, compact and thoughtful piece..Jae

Your sound advice... say not a word, hold your tongue... applies to most every situation wherein others make declarations. Well done, Laurie!
