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.

To My Mother

All of the things you do for me
Do not make me grateful, I'm blind, you see
I know that you work all day and all night
I know I mean well, I just can't show it right
Will you believe me if I say
That I wanted you happy on Mother's Day?
It's my fault I'm unkind, I know that now
Making it up to you, I just don't know how
Alas all I can say is I try very hard
Though I know you may take me for a bucket of lard
Laziness and a mean attitude
Are only the teenage monster prelude
How many times have I done you wrong?
I promise that soon I will sing a new song
Thank you kindly for all you have done
You really shine brighter than any sun
My maternal neglect brings you to tears,
But I swear I'll try harder in upcoming years
