One Stitch at a Time

Friendships are made
one stitch at a time.
A feeling of comfort
so hard to define...
like a fine old quilt
is soft and warm,
friendships enfold
and then conform.
Friendships surround,
yet set us free
so each person can be
what she must be
Together they grow
and soon both find
that friendships are made
one stitch at a time.

If love is missing someone
when you can't be together,
If love is feeling sunny,
no matter what the weather,
If love is like a stormy sea
that tosses you about,
If love is like a tantrum
that makes you want to pout,
If love is an aching heart
that has you in its grip,
If love is feeling foolish enough
eo want to do a flip,
If love is like a hug
that warms you to your soul,
If love is overflowing
and more than you can hold,
If love is ever changing
and grows from year to year
Then love is worth each radiant smile
and even worth the tears!

Welcome!  The world needs more nice people like you!

Just as the pieces of a Crazy Patch quilt are varied in size and shape and sewn together with stitches fancy or plain, our lives vary from day to day and year to year, and are sewn together with stitches of love, some fancy and meticulously done, some plain and simple, some fraying over time.

This collection of poems is representative of my crazy patch life, some bright and new, some showing their age, some seemingly finding their way here from an alternate universe.  Just as our lives twist and turn on a whim, so does this poetry patchwork.

Take a break from the ordinary.  Sit down on the porch with a cup of tea and relax for a few minutes in my world.   Buy one for yourself or as a gift.
