My mother is new to blogging, and I love the things she is writing, and I’m proud of her for sharing her heart on the web…
This is a poem written by her… and I want to share it here today…
A Patchwork Quilt
I hurry through my busy day when I suddenly catch a glimpse of
Something beautiful and fleeting.
I pause for a moment and there it is.
I’d forgotten for a while
The golden dream and amber promises
Dancing side by side on the cool fabric.
Comforting earth tones and inviting yellows
Longing to be touched and admired.
So I draw closer and pause at the splendor of each
Carefully chosen design.
Orange patches intricately laced with
Ribbons of every shade imaginable.
Sumac reds springing from
Clusters of spruce blues and ever greens.
A tapestry of sugar mixes here and there to delight.
And herringbone stitches of deepest purples and browns
Connecting each of the patches securely in a
Gifted to us each year for a brief moment by
The Greatest Creator.
I am certainly not the only one in my family who loves to string words together and share them with others.
My oldest son, Josiah, wrote a book of quotes a few months ago:
My brother, Ben, has a published novella:
And Ben has another book on the way in the spring – this time an autobiography about living with Asperberger’s Syndrome.
I can’t wait to see it in print!
