I see a person beneath a shallow light weaving away when words come to describe what she is working on. They could be: beautiful, blue, colorful crazy, down, finished, first, handmade, heavy, large, new, red, small, and thick.

I was fascinated by the rhyme pattern in this poem. It is most delightful, original and pleasing to read! Also, your rhyming words are far from trite or even expected. Very creative and well-written poem and much enjoyed by me. MM

These first two lines set the mood for the entire poem. They are genius.

"In my room, I did ponder.
Lost without travelling."

Life is like a patchwork quilt that we put together. Hopefully it comes out as a beautiful quilt. But not without problems. Thank you for sharing.

"Lost without travelling" - I like that, and it sets a tone for the rest of the poem.

I know there are often many interpretations for the same work, but this one really put me in mind of COVID. Travel restricted, followed by the need to go beyond "the garden gate". Even the mention of guilt and tears spilt for those who may have passed from the virus.

The lost stanza makes me think of a person whose life is a patchwork of experience and emotion - and what is waiting for him.

Hope you're not scratching your head now, lol!

I did enjoy pondering this nicely written poem.

Life is a tapestry, whichever way we look at it. I thought you opened your poem with terrific words.
'In my room, I did ponder. Lost without travelling.'
That is something we all do, ponder, losing ourselves with our thoughts, travel without moving. It's only by seeing our life's tapestry that we can judge and see ourselves as we are. Only in that way can we start over. The last lines end your poem perfectly.

My heart has no intention of turning back.
When it knows its love will have flourished.
Upon a patchwork quilt.
Where the fabric of myself is rebuilt.

Superb!! And a pleasure to read. :)) Sandra xx

I found these words very deep, thought provoking, filled with memories,
determination, are descriptive and creative. The author words were expressed well with the feelings and growth that were part of this quilt.
I am still pondering on this well written thought provoking poem.

nice peom. what is the format? I see you repeat the line a patchwork quilt throughout the poem. I like the mood, the setting, the imagery and the spirit.
