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.

Signed, someone with a chill

Dear weather man up in the sky,

Why?

Shivering, cloaked in cold and
Many sweatshirts. The winds seem to howl around me
They are probably faint zephyrs to everyone else.
My nose is a cherry tomato. My ears most likely
Ruby red. I snuffle and sniffle. Rub my numb fingers together. They are blue.
Today the cold makes me
A rainbow. Multicolored.
My toes curl and uncurl in my sneakers.
Note to self: wear thicker socks. Next time.
Of course I hope there will be no next time.
But it is October, and I live in New England,
So yes.

Until next time,
Someone with a Chill
