She formed the felt with natural fleeces
in grey, brown, and black,
light and dark
moulding them into seamless sheets.
She over sewed it in colours ever changing
in each of the different shapes,
mingling narrow slabs with thin triangles,
taking unfamiliar many sided shapes
around new corners to collide
with conventional shapes.
The colours are stitched in merging patches
with a sheen in swirling circles:
opulent red – orange – yellow,
rich purple – blue – turquoise.
Strong white is sprinkled with rainbow specks
dark brown scattered with white daubs.
The felted sheet is now
a shifting kaleidoscope of
colours, shapes, lights,
lustrous in the light.
