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.

Twilight on the Lake

twilight falls over the lake
a plum colored glow
spreads across the tops of the trees
the sky turns the color of blueberry jam
the waters of the lake calm
into a mirror
broken only by the dragonflies
skittering across the surface
a million tiny circles
grow larger
the trees stand
their black outlines etched against the sky
bats flit around the perimeter
skeletal wings flapping
blind eyes piercing the darkness
the stars
begin their dance
softly at first, then faster
as the sky fades to ebony
and twilight is gone
