Chimera 66, # 6, “The Thimble”

 “The Thimble”

She pushes, coaxes, presses needle through.

With labored love, the handsome fabric knows

that meaning of attachment thus imbued.

Her stitches mixed with tears, the fabric glows.

She makes her mourning coat from their love nest.

Resounding chimes the tolling bell

that beckon all to see his final best:

that coat of colors thus becomes his shell

as, lovingly,  her thimble now may rest.

Thimble W_T_star_mark_embroidery-AT-9-10(prompt for Chimera 66, #6 is “thimble” and story/poem must be written in exactly 66 words.)
