delicate like antique lace
filled with courage and willingness
the gaps, emptiness,
do not matter
until shredded, until torn
only then, noticed
lace is lace because of the holes
shapes bound together by tiny threads of trust
made by hands that believe in beauty
caring hands twist it,
a skein of hope
a perfection of pattern
grace lies in the balance
between courage and fear
