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.

Happy Halloween!

In October when the sun goes down
There comes the beasts of gown and crown
Fluffy pink and midnight blue
Can you be cute and scary too?
Fierce little tigers, ghouls and ghosts
Grabbing candy from their hosts
Princesses marching up the street
Waving wands to gain a treat
Bloody pumpkins, chains, and moans
Skeletons with missing bones
Enough candy to rot teeth
Put your sword back in its sheath!
Toddlers dressed in pumpkin suits
Cowboy hats with high heeled boots
Do you need a pillowcase?
Better bring two, and increase your pace
Maybe you will need a truck
That much candy will need luck
Give them a sweet smile and say
"Hope you had a wonderful day"
The creepiest is the haunted house
The witch is sweating through her blouse
Face paint really makes a scare
If you put it in your hair
Shall we eat some pumpkin seeds?
The gypsy wants to buy more beads
Boards that creak beneath your feet
Hungry for anything sweet
Circumstances unforeseen
Wish me Happy Halloween!


  1. I really like this! You've definitely captured the essense of Halloween :)

  2. It's really good. On one of the lines, "case" is the rhyming word for "case", which seems a But spirit of Halloween is present through out.
