Distance

Weave your string in and out between the threads
The strands you leave behind, show up again out ahead
Distance winds up and around across the bedspread
Keep the needle moving under and then overhead
Look close and remember the journey is the reward
Fix that stitch, get back on the path, don't be misled.
