I am a Patchwork Quilt

I am a patchwork quilt.
Many varied pieces from my life
strewn across the floor
solitary scraps each singing a tiny tune
laying around waiting.
Waiting for someone to
sew them all together
knit them into a whole
compose the song.
Choose the best pattern
the layout of colors
the flow of the vibe
the rhythm of my life.

I am a patchwork quilt.
My stitches pull and strain
to keep my life on track
to keep joy intact.
Threads that try to hold
pieces that want to fly
in swirling circles
in troubling breezes.

I am a patchwork quilt.
My patches are my quilter friends
the best pieces of a life
that doesn't deserve them
but they are still here
patient, glowing,
singing, inspiring.
