Mending or Rending?

Sometimes, the repair

is simple:

A seam pulled loose

by too forceful

a tug;

letting out

the hem, due

to a growth spurt;

tightening button or snap,

to keep things together.

But, there are times

when the fabric is so worn,

so fragile, that continued 

stitching only makes the tear


How difficult it is to realize

that garment you loved

will no longer be


Can you salvage the materials 

for something new?

Will you frame and hang it?

Or put it in a cedar chest, 

safe, and treasured.

Safe and treasured.
