“Think of yourself as a living quilt”

“After India”

Think of yourself as a living quilt”    by Sharon in Staten Island

every day you get to re-arrange
and re-align all your pieces
patterns of near empty white
patterns of dense textured colors

moved to the middle or
to the edges or back again

moods or intuitions
or anger or depression
or comfort or healing
or happiness or bliss
grounded or spacey

nothing is right or wrong
it just is. “


I was done for the day, ready for bed.  Then I opened my email and saw this poem sent  from Sharon.  It is the truth so perfectly and beautifully written.  It’s always how I’ve felt about my quilts, now I will have a reminder to feel the same about myself.  Thank you Sharon.
