Quilted Hearts by Cindy and Tristan

Quilted Hearts

You move to me so quietly
and lay in silence with me now, 
you seem to just appear to me... 
and then refuse to tell me how.
Your heart entices me to you,
fears fall away, your flesh you bare,
your pleas are whispered tenderly
and beg my pen my soul to share.
No myth, no tear, no wish, no fear
your nakedness will show me none.
You draw me in so close to you
I seem to dwell with you as one.
You fill a space within my soul
our thoughts together make one dream,
yet with you here, so far -- so near,
we are one fabric with no seam.
As moments pass you teach me truths,
some answers that Id never known;
 I did not know which things to ask
until your fertile seeds were sown.
And yet I know not who you are
nor why, my love, you've come to me
from darkest sky, a shining star,
sent by a prayer to set me free.
Author's Notes:

Rhymed quatrains in iambic octameter.
quilting [kwilt-ing] verb [trans.]
to join together (layers of fabric) with lines of stitching to form a bed covering or a warm garment -- or, in this case,
to have Poet and Muse share an experience of togetherness metaphorically described as such.

Painting by 
Gustav Klimt

I must add to my original comment... the picture adds another texture to the is very special to me because it is the only picure I have on my son and his wife chose that picture for their wedding invitation. It is captured beautifully in your poem.

Words sewn together like the finest quilt and with words as smooth as silk that blend together so perfectly. Excellent work Cindy and Tristan.  Hugs,   Henry

...mmmmm delicious words and phrases.  fifth stanza was my favorite...teaching truths...supplying answers before the questions were formulated in the mind...what better communication could one ask for between poet and muse? or between student and teacher?  Loved the title and the last stanza as well.  Look forward to reading each entry from this remarkable duo!  ...Ljo, returning to the sewing machine and my own quilting project.

This is truly a beautiful poem, you both write from the same pen, blending flawlessly each line on the page.  This is definitely one of my favorites.
