she was of the earth

I always love weaving a tale along with each new scarf that I make:

this one is called:

“she was of the earth” hemp, cotton & silk scarf

as a child she
was always running barefoot
on the hard packed
earthen trails
her tiny feet
pattering
she loved the feel
of the warmth
of the earth
between her toes
in the hot summer sun
she loved to play
in her mother’s garden
holding out chunks of soil
in wonderment
amazed that she could
capture
a bit of our beautiful
expansive
enormous
earth
and hold it
in her tiny palm

it was fun to think up ways to photograph this scarf…

I love this shot because of its flow and movement.
………it was as if she leapt up onto her feet…

…and headed out to the beautiful earthen trail among the trees….
