Animal Quilt

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Real Toads:  Artistic Interpretations
“Quilt Me A Poem” with Margaret

Write a poem using one of these fabric details.


If it’s color you want,
we rule. Look at us,
a pool of colored
waters, a collage
of nature’s finest.
We blend. We complement
each other. Stripes,
splotches, spots, feathers
with tiny dots. Few of us
are only black or white.
Orange, russet, yellow,
and my elephant pal
in wrinkled steel gray,
whites tusks shining.
If it’s color you want,
we rule.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
