The Persian carpet~by Prince Ibekwe


 

 

The Persian carpet

Image may contain: cloud, sky, twilight, outdoor and nature

thousands of richly
coloured threads
a thread 
spreads
spanning the time
between birth
and death
this persian mat is
beautifully woven
into sculptural patterns
and images
in her affluence
lies pain and stress
from the weight of the human
she carries

this wears her stunning beauty
away
efforts to reweave or
misplace the threads dampen
her comeliness
she must be laid there
unwrapped
and
untouched

Ibekwe Prince Joseph ®
