Laced

Lace is mostly holes,
artfully arranged,
like family history.
Blank spaces are
connected by stories
they told, we tell.
History keeps us apart,
holds us together.
History is lace.
Lace is mostly holes

  4. This is so powerful, Victoria. "History keeps us together, keeps us apart" is the light bulb for me. Thanks.
