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.

A Day By the Water

The sun kisses my cheek
My arms,
My back
Tall blades of grass
Tickle my ankles
The blanket lies quiet beneath me
Cornflower blue sky
Marshmallow clouds
The water
Across the grass is
The water
I feel
Strangely perfect
Living in the
Alternate life
That doesn't seem to be real
In fact
My reality is shaken
Never to recover
Yet brightened
For good
