    security blanket

    it comes like a beautiful quilt
    wondrous to behold
    hand made with fabulous stitching
    by hands young and old
    with 10 millions stories to tell per finger
    and every story over lapping it’s co-author
    for each seamstress is an author

    patching life together with strong thread
    in ways to bind joy to sorrow
    birth to death
    and the in-betweens the space-fillers
    are time
    and time never stops
    time never quits
    like a Timex it keeps right on ticking
    it encompasses the patchwork
    framing the story like a hardbound cover
    embossed with gold lettering

    the author binds time with events
    and events with memory
    and memory with people, places and things
    in tongues the author interprets the stories
    in verbs nouns and adjectives
    so that the quilt lives on in the minds
    of those who possessed it with their eyes
    read the authors stories all 10 million of them
    to the young and the strangers

    it comes like a beautiful quilt
    knowledge of life
    so i began to write this story for my sons
    many years ago so that i can cover them
    when i’m no longer here with them
    and whisper stories to their minds
    through my poems
