Life in Patchwork

My heart is warmed by my quilt
The sounds and colours
And memories
Dreams and realities
Laughter and tears
Love and lust
Passion and pain
Snippets of the past making the whole of me in the present
Growing more colourful as the years pass
Stitched together to keep me safe and warm
The comfort blanket of my childhood
The kingsized quilt of my middle age
Patterns and textures holding my favourite memories
My rose tinted pains and my future dreams
Soft furnishing my life

    King-sized quilt of middle age. <– favorite line 🙂 I really liked how you used the quilt in this and your verse seemd very "patchwork"

    I like the idea that all of life’s experiences–good and not good–are stitched together to make something beautiful. A poem full of comfort in many ways.

    I like how you describe the quilt growing as you age!
