A patchwork of color;
So many vivid hues
And varieties of vistas
Creating an amazing view.
Cookie-cutter patterns portraying
A sense of security,
Still, simplistic stylistic differences
Portending creativity and uniqueness.
From each separate area
A new story awaits.

Carefully crafted by hand,
Seaming the stories together,
Forming a membership map,
Completely covering one wall
For all to see.
Replacing old with new
While repeating the ritual
And keeping the custom
As the community continues
To change and grow.

Holding onto traditions and
Customs to pass along
To future generations within
The community. But how
Dull life would be
Without so many colors
And without that variety!
Every story has merit.
Growth occurs through change,
And change is inevitable.
