By Linda Bowden

I’m made of patches,
Of different shades,
And sizes of material,
Triangles and squares,
     I’m so complicated,
          Each detail,
Flowered and patched.
               I’m a blanket,
Of Years and experience,
Of patches of this time and others,
   Woven together one by one.
      I’m a quilt of most beautiful,
         Delicate patters and such,
            Of stitching neatly in rows,
               Of lace lined patches.

Linda holds an MBA and is currently studying for her doctorate, and although she is semi-retired Linda has more time to invest into writing.

Creating is both exhilarating and rewarding, even if it is only for you.
