Alexandra Drenth • embroidery and textile collages


the power of poetic textiles

no hurry, time is on my side

The totem animals of my time, never glancing backward
where imagination would never fray, and once again, forge a path homeward
Embroidered companions intricately weaving tales in cloth

There, too, I hailed from, yet lost and never found the way back

While the velvet whales ceaselessly beckoned for me to return home,
They drift through the fabric of my textiles like liberated spirits to superior spheres;

they mustn't forget to bear me along

Those childhood dreams were truth.
Upon my return, I shall embrace them all and never relinquish them again
