Flirting With Lesbians….and more

In Memory of the many
who were needlessly lost
but who’s bravery in the face
of uncertainty and certainty
inspires and engrages

silence = death
don’t be still or quiet

Source of Inspiration

Color my square green
with tiny yellow and purple flowers.
Tiny stitches join your square and
then another until the quilt fashioned
with love, covers the Earth creating
a harmonious mosaic for colors and patterns.

As I was looking for a photo to illustrate this poem, I found the story of the Aids Memorial Quilt. I had forgotten about it though I followed its making, which started around 1985, for a number of years. I was amazed to see that it was still being created and exhibited. It is a wonderful example of how a small idea can join thousands of people together for a common cause. Sometimes we think that as one, small person, we can have so little impact but reading this story will once again show how one person started something with a loving heart and it has been in force for 25 years.
