though cut
from the same fabric
they did not
fit the design
so they were
scattered along
the streets
and alley ways
some were stored
and piled high
in refugee camps
if woven together
with love
and care
they would  make
a very fine
coat of many colors
the type
i’m told

  1. So poignant, Charles… really beautiful !
    And really, those colorful quilts are quite beautiful to the eye and soul too… as long as they are woven with love…

    I particularly liked this poem a LOT, Charles!!! Bravo…
