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 Weather

the wind howls
a hungry animal, eager to catch my ears-hold them fast

and the weather is against me
my mind is a blank as rain pelts at me
threatening to soak my pants, my mood-me
thunder quick and jealous in the sky
the lightning gets all the attention
and the weather frightens me
fog from some world
other than mine floats across the fields
sprinkling dew drops like diamonds 
across the grass
trees sketched in charcoal
quick strokes strong against the mist

and the weather mystifies me
