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.

Greedily biting pages
licking paragraphs to catch the juices
that trickle down the spine
smiling a hunter's smile
as you catch your prey and hold it fast
one chapter at a time
lustily tearing apart the words
sentences, fragments of dreams
the story unfolds
you stuff it in your mouth quickly
savoring is a thing from the past
Text blinds you and suffocates you
yet you continue
to the end
