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.

I am a Dreamer

I am writing this poem as an extension of a former poem...I was given the idea by Katie, who said it would make a good longer poem. I agree, so here goes:

I am a dreamer.
Imagination billows across my mind
Slipping in through the cracks of imperfection
Pooling in the most used corners, hiding in the light
I am a dreamer. With every breath I take comes
Ideas, new life and light.
Stars are beautiful, the starry night of brilliance
Dances before my eyes, sings in my ears and tickles my skin
I am a dreamer of color and texture and shape
Azure and vermillion, rough and smooth, perfectly round with jagged edges.
Happy endings and crushing defeats, oak trees and strawberries, perfectly picked
Sunsets on beaches and sunrises on the tops of mountains
Snow blinding the eager eyes of watchers.
I am a dreamer of today and tomorrow. And yesterday.
Continuing to dream and laugh. Today and tomorrow and tomorrow.
