Memory Quilt

Memory quilt
I stitch each thought
Each sentiment

Together

Maybe someday
I'll give it to you
Whole

The prompt for this week's Thursday Think Tank is timeworn. Ella introduced us to an amazing artist who creates visual poetry using things from the past. You can visit her blog to view her work here. To read the other contributions, or to join in go here.

This is a very beautiful poem and sentiment....I can see the quilt and love "maybe one day I will give it to you whole." Wow. My grandma used to make quilts. I so wish I had one of them now.

I love the idea of one's thoughts as a pieced quilt...a work in progress.

Yes I agree the ending ties up the loose ends nicely.

Laura Maria,

This is beautiful. It feels like a treasure to be passed on....You must record your words in a book:)

Best Wishes,

I sure hope those are good memories! Or gettting it whole might not be a s good as it sounds. Seriously, the tone is this is warm and sweet, so there is no worry.

Lovely interpretation: all those bits of mood in a patchwork: happy, disappointed, mad at 'him' or 'her, optimistic about tomorrow. Great take.
