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.

There's a frog in my throat
Or maybe two or three
A cat's pulling my tongue
In a most unpleasant way
Two elephants are sitting
On my feet
Which makes moving rather hard
And I'm almost positive there is a woodpecker
Inside my head,
Trying desperately to get out
Hanging off of my arms
Are four monkeys, two on each
Making my shoulders ache and
Resist movement
A snake is slithering through my stomach
Frightening the butterflies
Who are also causing my nausea
My lungs are two tortoises
Weighing down my breathing
Making me gasp and choke
