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.

Dolphin of Steel

a small spoon of metal
         wire is taken out of the package
                        then the work begins
                              wires bend and break
                                     twisting and sculpting
              into something magnificent and beautiful
                                        first a jumble of silver that winds around
                                                   my fingers then      
                                                  slowly the animal takes shape
                                                    I give it life and
                                                   the warmth of a being
                                                    it gains excitement
                                                  and a thirst for being finished
                                                    my fingers are pricked
                                                    in several places
                                                       a bead of blood drips
                                                  down but I persist
                                            continuing to bend the metal
                                        form and reform
                        the beauty and gracefullness of the dolphin of steel
