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.

North Carolina

I came
A suntanned girl
Looking for opportunity
Searching for the end of summer
In the brown dregs of a bowl of wet clay
Six days flew by
Six days of laughing and learning
Spilling and making huge messes
Gorging myself on things
That looked vile
But tasted fabulous
I am leaving
A girl
With short fingernails
Smudges under her eyes
And probably smeared clay somewhere
On her body
A happy heart
When I step on the plane
In the dense air of North Carolina
I will turn my head
Raise my glaze spattered hand
And wave goodbye
