swathed in colors

draped in fabric

labyrinths of stitches

endless bits of cloth

love in every pinprick

and aching muscle

.

colors dim

fabric frays

stitches stray

fragments fumble

pins scatter

muscles rebel

.

furl the colors

fold the fabric

tie off the threads

gather the remnants

tuck the pins

slacken the muscles

.

colors at half-mast

fabric a shroud

thread is snapped

scraps are torn

love is empty

body at rest

.

glimpse the colors

fondle the fabric

wind up the thread

shake out the quilt

wrap up in love

and

remember

.

In Memory of Ellen Marston (1916-2011), neighbor, fellow quilter, and friend .
