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.

Brunch at Our House

The griddle heats and batter is thrown together
Onto the steaming surface, pancakes are born
Waffles sizzle and come out
Edges perfectly crisp, with squares for syrup
In place
Company comes, talking and laughing
Stomping cold feet on the mat outside
Shoes and coats come off
Into the home, and orange juice
For everyone
More laughter, talking
And the dog is happy
Where there is food
The piano is dusted
Keys are played again
And today music fills the house
They are not serious
Yet Fiddler on the Roof never sounded
So good
Bananagrams in the living room
The food is still hot
Words are made
And guesses are wrong
People depart
Thank you's and coats back on
Hugs goodbye and promises
Of course we will
Do this again.
