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.

Five Sentence Fiction: Bewitched

Bruno's head was resting easily on the velvet of the box, his pink tongue lolling slightly out of his mouth, quivering with each slow exhale. Next to him sat Jane, her hands clutching at the armrests and her eyes alight with a fire he had never seen before. With every crystalline note, her heart beat out of her chest and she sighed in rapture, staring at the bewitching scene on the stage. Opera was her passion, where her very heart and soul went out onto the stage, and Bruno was too oafish and boring to care. Jane glanced over at Bruno, drooling slightly, and she knew then that he was not the one.

Well, that was this week's prompt. It seems that I will never be able to use the common definition for words, but I was just not in the mood for writing something scary. All my Halloween stories end up helplessly cliche and I liked where this piece was going. It was fun to write! For anyone seeing Five Sentence Fiction for the first time, you can check it out at Lillie McFerrin's blog...


  1. I always think of being bewitched as a happy thing, so this is exactly the type of writing I love with this word. Great piece! Smart girl, too :)

  2. This is great - I so thought Bruno was a boxer dog!!! Well done , and I think you have done very well- bewitched , enchanted is EXACTLY what she was feeling, with the opera (but not with him!!) You put a whole detailed story in to this piece.

  3. I love this piece!!!! Probably because I have been Jane sitting at the opera alongside Bruno and have thought EXACTLY the same thing!


Thanks so much for reading my piece. I am always looking for inspiring words, suggestions, and feelings you got from reading this. Please leave your thoughts here.
