Sunday Stash #120 – In Your Triangle
The fabulous fabric fairy Danielle (@beautifulhandmade) has once again delivered a surprise package of Liberty cuts to my door. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude every time I open one of these packages! The more of them I receive, the more I want to put them all together into a scrappy, half square triangle quilt, then rub it all over my naked body! Glorious, yes, indeedy!
Completely unrelated, and just for something a little bit different, today I thought I would share a poem I wrote fifteen years ago. It’s a bit melancholy, but it still strikes a chord with me today. If there’s interest, I’d be happy to share other written pieces I’ve amassed over the years. Variety is the sparkle of my life!
In Your Triangle
Dilute my need for your necessity.
Resign your ravenous warmth and feed it to me;
Damage demands I be selfish with you,
because I’m cavernous, and in your arms
is where I crave to be.
I doubt you’ve known my apprehension–
Your touseled head and heroine’s been turned away.
But if you decide to graze my eyes,
Don’t gaze too deep, because I’m aghast
at the words they’d say.
If it’s unknown to you, it’s understandable.
I’d be unable to command this full-fledged absurdity.
Blistering wind would blow my sails
To a bank of blue that I detest, and we’d
lose to our own adversity.
