Patchwork world


Patchwork world

My eyes see
patchwork quilts
more beautiful,
than blankets of
one color.
I love a patchwork quilt of people.
I love driving down the street to see
a patchwork of people
at the bus stop,
in line at the supermarket,
in stadium rows,
in church pews,
all around me.
I’m cozier,
stronger,
enriched by
prints and differences

vintages and history.

Celebrate in colors,
of heritage’s reflection,
pulled tight
as if a hug
around you.

My eyes see
patchwork quilts
more beautiful
than blankets
of one color.
