how a wise mother
weaves her children’s tomorrows
using threads of chance

  1. Wow, your haiku really jumped out at me–as a mother–but also as the perfect companion for this beautiful fabric.

  2. A very beautiful image. A mother could be the sister of Lady Fortune.

  3. We weave with whatever threads God gives us.

  4. A wise mom gives the child that air of confidence that suggests that failure may be an option – but give all good opportunities a chance. The mother has thus provided the knowledge and values that the child will use to weave the good life…

  5. Threads of chance…that’s pretty…
    it’s all what the weaver does with those threads.

  6. how eloquently said; being a mother and (a grandmother of ten months now) you have touched me especially; have a good Tuesday

    much love…

  7. very nice. I think a mother uses the best of what ever is available at the time to do the best she can for her children’s futures.

  8. such a wise haiku…

  9. What a beautiful haiku. Love the fabric.
