The Bootmaker

"The Bootmaker", photography by Rob Hanson

The Bootmaker

Each day he spends long hours
bent over the pieces of leather fragments
neatly cut from a large piece, whole
He unwraps threads from rightly coiled spools, and begins…
His heart hums with the machine
his hands guide the parts
as he crafts pieces back into a whole,
stitches summing up a life.
