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.

Chap Stick

An Ode to Chapstick

My lips they burn
At twist and turn
With every word I say
Form ridges deep
With every peep
How can it go away?

I wish to sing
Without a sting
But cannot find a way
Then chap stick's here
Bringing me cheer
All throughout the day

That waxy gleam
Which comes from cream
Is that a strawberry scent?
A tube of the stuff
Is never enough
Because it came and went

I love you chap-stick, forevermore
You sooth my lips right to the core
And when my lips are feeling hot
I slather you right on the spot
