What to do: Write, film, compose, draw, paint, or otherwise express yourself based on the photo above. If you are open to sharing, just put a link to your inspired creation in the comments section of this post. :)

Prompt inspired by:

I stumbled on Snowcatcher during a search for snowflake patterns to use as ornament gifts last Christmas. The sheer volume of beautiful snowflake patterns available is staggering and that they are offered for free as long as you don't sell the patterns is an amazing gift.

Make no mistake though, crocheted snowflake patterns is just one small part of what Snowcatcher has to offer. Definitely give it perusal for her Wordless Wednesday photos, if you have an interest in bicycling (especially in the Rockies), or if you just want a glimpse into the life of really talented and bright-hearted blogger.

My take on this week's prompt:

The Craft

Longing to make beauty
from a single string and simple hook,
the child chained for hours
but went no further...
I was twenty-seven
before patience afforded
this stubborn daughter
the opportunity
to be passed my mother's magic.

Now, with knowledge enough to crochet
my own intricate designs,
I smile at the continued requests
to weave words, not yarn, for Christmas.
