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.

Her single earring gleams in the faint light
Of the cabin
Lanterns sway and the air
Is rank and
Her shirt
Sticky with perspiration
Stiff with salt and grime
Gives off an odor
Of the sea
Her boots tell her story
Well worn
Patched and re-patched
Her eyes sear holes into yours
They are ocean
Blue and
Fierce as a lion
Her smile tells of
Excitement on the high
For one and all


  1. Is this about Elizabeth Swan? ;)

  2. I didn't really have anyone in mind. I guess I was just trying out piracy from a different perspective. I do know of her, but I was not basing it on her.
