Haiku and Quilting

These haiku were prompted by a TV Show that I watched recently.

The series is Craft in America on Public Broadcasting.  The piece featured quilt artists whose art largely tells a story rich with history and social commentary.

Haiku One

Color harmony
Surface ripples with texture
Embracing comfort.

Haiku Two

Jarring images
Reminders of our foibles
Cloaked in coziness

The Fourth of Anytime

Contemplating the fourth of anytime

in that empty room

somewhere between here and there

ready and waiting

as I am for you

hungering for your touch

longing to feel your body

pressing, molding to mine


Keenly sensing your warmth

Your strength – innate power

Long known inner signposts

guide our lips , our fingers

skimming, probing,

caressing, demanding,

plunging, drowning

finding, losing.


Focusing, forgetting

Our world distilled as trembling sensation

Building,  seeking the limits

Bursting through imaginary fences

Carrying us to new realms

Clinging, crying out

Destiny realized

In this lifetime.
