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.

The journey starts with ink and pen
I sit and write the world away
For when the blackness seeks me out
I with poetry will stay
Define myself in ways so bright
The letters flow and so do I 
To fight against the darkest night
With poetry I touch the sky
There can thoughts fly free as falcons
When I write stars dance for me
Poems fly through the tips of fingers
Words unending as the sea
I love my notebook full of dreams
The puzzle pieces of myself
When I am ripping at the seams
To this I turn upon the shelf
And sit to wield the sword of words
In one gleaming, glittering ark
With writing I am always free
On this journey I embark

  1. Nice job! I can relate to this piece so well. My writing is an escape, it's therapy, and it's where I am free to be completely me.

    To fight against the darkest night
    With poetry I touch the sky - Love this!!!
