Type of Poem:  HEPTASTITCH

First quilt, a pre-baby purchase
Awaiting the arrival of perfect hope
Second hands' made, a secret pal’s bequeath
Blazoning a message about education
Future aspirations shouted in confined space
Third symbol, Tweety’s loving message
Trumpeting daughter’s love to him

Fourth sewing, catalog-ordered
Offering prayers for all ills and woes
Fifth stitching beckoned to soul’s thirst
Heralding the prophetic birth of Christ
Next one filled with colored eggs and blooms
Memorializing the month Mama left me
A hindrance to Easter’s blooming essence

Another quilt, very toned, masculine
Celebrating Father’s Day’s significance
Enshrining Papa’s departure to God
Next cover, goodness’ cornucopia
Showcasing all fills of thankfulness
Ninth puff stitched love to lovers
Filled with hearts; Cupid shooting arrow

Tenth comforter honored St. Patrick
A man of Ireland, unknown to me
Linked with Nigerian surname of O
Last patchwork, a stake to future claims
Anticipating a continuation
Connecting daughter’s unborn offspring
Granting me assurance into future hopes

--My dream has loved paper so much for so long because it gave influence to the parched voice of a fashionista poet. Finding this outlet, that voice is now replete with expressive sound.
