I Made a Quilt This Summer

I made a quilt this summer.

I sewed scraps of my soul to

A background of rosebud-dreams

And waited patiently as invisible

Hands from the past

Guided my stitches.

Small voices from the future gave my quilt

Life, and I

Smiled when I saw the

Finished product.

My friends questioned my

Simple summer,

But although it was not Europe

And didn’t make noise and bright lights,

It was me.

I made a quilt this summer.
