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.

Smile: OSI

First off, I am so, so sorry for missing yesterday. I thought I had posted in the morning, but looking back I realized I hadn't. Anyway, I will make up for it and post two today. First, I am posting a poem inspired by a prompt at One Single Impression (found here). I was advised to find this blog, and they post words to inspire poems. I am very excited to try it out for myself. Here I go again, adding another thing to this blog. I think I am addicted to linkys.

This prompt was "Smile"


She stares unabashed
Long eyelashes silky and hiding
Bright eyes of passion
He lounges on his chair
Pencil tip tapping the side of his mouth
His hair curls at the tip
Of his neck, hers is long
A curtain between them
Modesty between feather brown locks
Suddenly, she is caught
As a deer in the headlights
His eyes lock
With her widened ones
The pencil drops to the table
She flicks her hair over her face
Desperate to hide the pink
Blossom of a blush
His mouth slowly turns up at the corners
He raises a hand gracefully
Waves the tips of fingers at her
Smiles and
Melts her heart
She smiles back.

  1. I love it, Claire ~~ I think most of us have had these 'caught in the headlights' moments. I blush but really I like it. I know the one in your poem liked it too.
    Welcome to One Single Impression.
    The OSI prompt words are listed in the December 31, 2011 post of OSI. There are only two left so there may be a call for prompts soon. The prompts are also on the calendar on the right hand side bar.
