Bluebird came this spring
The sun back to my soul.
Has left my spirit whole.
(Batik flowers in random batik squares
reminiscent of a coreopsis growing in the cracks of my patio)
EVEN IN THE DESERT
With a little dust
And a little dew
Even in brick walks
A flower grew.
(This is a creation quilt. The center 'CHAOS' block was a rescued ugly block some one discarded. It is set 'square in square ' in four triangles suggesting the first four days of creation. The outer borders complete the creation week. A charm figurine represents man. I made a big mistake in the way I quilted it which resulted in one section not having batting. When I replaced it, a ridge was left which can be felt but not seen. This is my sin and forgiveness.)
Even on the darkest days
There's a shaft of golden light
To help you through
Your darkest times--
To guide you through the night.
Remember through your lonely times
When life seems full of woe
There's someone here
Who's been there too,
Just take the time to know
That sunny days, or lonely days
There's some who just
(black on white Mimbres bird on fish applique)
I smiled through
And many years
I laughed at
And shared my tears,
And I was loved
(Applique Indian woman Gorman style)
She sits on the mesa.
The Listening Woman
And God's spirit
(Blue and gold pinwheel block with floral border)
Spatulas don't fit in the dishwasher-- comfortably
Five people don't fit on the pews
Sometimes I feel like the odd man out.
How about you!
I am a retired old woman trying to learn new things. I've decided that since my children are grown I would start some new adventures in life. So I moved across the country to a big city.
I'm blogging in hopes that someone will read and enjoy my writings. Next I'll get out the old paintbrush!
