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.

  4. Liberty is indeed lovely but I really don't understand the price. I look forward to see what you make however!

  5. Happy Easter Mollie……The vision of you naked all wrapped up in a HST quilt is interrupting my train of thought……oh yes, the poetry is divine, more so, since it was written by a young man at the tender age of 16. You are, indeed, a man of many talents as well as a thoughtful and tender hearted one as well. I hope you will share more of your poetry with us. Hugs
