Skill and Care, Squared
More than denim and flannel,
each quilted square tells the story
of a life crafted with skill and care,
pieced from one moment to the next.
No less was the skill and care,
though likely more tender,
that brought these squares to life
to commemorate a life.
Made from flannel shirts and denim jeans
I wore as a truck driver, this handmade quilt was a retirement present.
The prompt for Day 20 of National/Global Poetry Month at napowrimo.net
