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.

A fiery sphere bursts through
Grey trunks of dawn
Silent grasses wave
In a faint zephyr
The sun rises
A haze of golden dust
Descends upon the earth
Warming the ground
Emerald leaves
Now ruby in the light
Across the field
A house is lit by the sunshine
The upper window is open
Letting in the bird's sweet song
The chill of morning
The light
Inside, a girl wakes
Rubs her bleary eyes
Her smile thick with sleep
She rises and pulls back the shade
She wouldn't miss it for anything
