Come up for a breath... Fight your way back, against the flow
Is your hand too cold? Can it sense the warming, the glow
As you climb?
Reflections are trembling, rippling to the edge of the pond
Stay here, just under this surface... You can see far beyond
In the dark, really.
(Inspired by the water lily in the quilt)
Thank you for sharing your memories--in photographs and art--describing your home.
I have woven them together, into a quilt of memories, and presented at my launch party
In celebration of my new book, Home.
