Welcome to “Poetry for the Summer.” Today’s blog is from my book “a slow and sudden God: 40 years of wonder.”  

He searched for the fragments, 

the scraps, 

the pieces 

of cloth of little worth; 

He found them, 

He found me. 

with His hands 

He joined me with others, 

threading us together 

with His intricate love. 

He is the Quiltmaker. 

once worthless, i am His; 

now one of many diverse squares 

made one by the Quiltmaker. 

together we are lovely.
