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 Spenserian Sonnet

Today, after listening to a healthy dose of Shakespeare's Sonnets on cassette, I decided to write a sonnet. This particular form is, in fact, not the kind that Shakespeare wrote, but slightly close. Maybe I will try an English sonnet tomorrow...

As I sit here and pick up my pen
A thousand thoughts fly around my head
Am I the bear trapped inside its den?
Or just a child, climbing into bed
You know, it has been said
That Shakespeare was the master of this piece
He could write of love and words unsaid
This thought makes my courage decrease
How can I top this man, deceased?
Instead I honor him tonight
I seek to write a poem and make peace
To fill his legacy with golden light
So please, William if you can see me now
Accept this poem, and accept my bow
