The Story of my Blog Title

Quilt of Dragonflies- My blog is named that for a reason.I am lucky enough to own a genuine Quilt of Dragonflies, which I am sure brings me good dreams when I sleep beneath it. It was given to me by a friend of my mother's, who handmade the entire thing. Color meets pattern in this fantastic piece of artwork which sits on my bed. Brilliant shades of purple, blue, and green intersperse with tie dye dragonflies. I will not hesitate to call it my inspiration.

Here is a poem I wrote recently about Artemis, the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and the Moon...


Goddess of the silvery moon
Forever hunting with hounds by her side
Artemis, cold as marble
Heaving the ocean-creating the tide

Artemis, pitiless daughter of Zeus
Racing her chariot ‘cross the night sky
Beloved by bears and birds of the wood
Brave Diana, who never would cry

Goddess of animals
Queen of young lovers too
Forever followed by fairies
Her hounds faithfully true

Artemis, shooting arrows
Of silvery light
As her white horses pull her
Up through the night

This queen, this beauty
Will be ever fair
As she bathes in quiet pools
Without a care

Aloof sister of Apollo
Artemis, statue of ice
Turning men into stags
Full of moonlight and vice
