life quilts


the patterns of unfamiliarity
make their way into my life
like a quilt-
patterns of different colors
different persuasions
different
ways
to
speak
to
me
through their origination
their individual perception
they exist in my time
a few moments
a few days
forever
squares start appearing
brilliant
blurry
planned for me to sew
our lives are created
through the patterns of our souls
