Sewing Buttons

The wind blows steadily through my hair
and plays with the edge of my skirt as I sit
on the patio and struggle to fit the navy thread
through the small eye of the needle, taking care
not to let the ends tangle or the button blow away
before I can fit it back into the proper place
on this third pair of pants needing mending.
