where do ruffles come from?

they are a sentiment
almost always made from simple, pure fabrics,
wavy shapes cut on the bias
laid down on curvy lines
colored & laundered & softened &
left in the sun
stitched by curiosity & not intention
by hand & by machine
there is an aesthetic that guides what they become
they start to look right when they’re a little tattered & maybe even dusty &
have become companions with the earth 
~they unlock a way in the world, 
a nostalgic view of things to come
marked with light and remembered.
