Upon a Field of Quilts

With a field of quilts 
they were married
in the picture it’s a
mere background of
color but if you were
there – there, in the
picture, you’d see
the invitation written
in the fields:  Come 
lie with me and be
my love . . . come,
let us claim the fields
as our very own 
eternal ‘spanse of joy
life together amidst
the tender hands of
mas and grandmas
and aunts and cousins
stitching our life upon
the fields we inhabit
in our dreams

For Casey & Justin Siron on their 2nd anniversary.  What a privilege it was to be there with you both amidst a field of quilts.  Blessings upon blessings for every year yet to come.
