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.

Rain-Five Seven Five Seven Syllabic Verse

The silver leaves with grey sides
Turned up toward the clouds
These leaves are a bad omen
There is a silence

Then suddenly a drip drop
Flip flop slippy slop
There's many funny noises
Rain slapping pavement

As you might slap a bad child
Trees moan mournfully
Groaning and creaking like old
Men who sit and stare

  1. I like the flow of this one very much. For some reason, I keep getting stuck on the 'there's many funny noises' line. As, I read it stops me every time.

    'The silver leaves with grey sides' is a beautiful line...well done :)
