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.

The tinkle of an ice cube
Against a plastic glass filled with
Sugar and carbonated water
The loud humming
Somewhere in the background
Never quite forgotten
The minuscule overhead fan
That blows cold air onto me
Somehow chilling me to the bone
The acrid smell
Floating just underneath the surface
Of badly disguised vomit
The clouds drift by
Seemingly unaware
That I am watching them
