Last Sunday, the quilt show ended.
I wandered past some 600 quilts,
with sore feet, a few quilts
decorated with ribbons,
hung casually among the others,
a quilt that made me stop.
a turquoise bear, raven,
a howling wolf,
with traditionally patched bear paw
blocks, all sacred spirit carriers
of past and present and future,
balanced in a dreamscape of white.
I wonder what creative journey
brought this quilt
to this place
for me to admire,
moved nearly to tears.
