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.

Away from the Field

the tension slowly builds
in my head alone
in my muscles, which 
screech into action
like an unused bike
I wipe away the rust 
from my cleats
from my shin guards
I polish my ball and 
siphon off the dirt and grime
from my legs
the tan of summer
spreads like a stain 
across me
a mark of my leisure 
and of the time spent
away from the field
