We shyly showed samplers
Holes and all
Picking up each other's stitches
Laid our patches side by side

Beginning the slow work
Of quilting community
Working in from the corners
Watching in wonder
As pictures form themselves
in the seams between pieces

Creating a new world
Patching scraps
Matching overlaps
Swapping symbols

Simultaneously making
Each self in each other.
