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.

This is actually a poem I wrote a while ago for a contest. Sadly, I did not win, but I still love the poem and wanted to share it.

cinnamon and spice
ginger, cumin.
black pepper and cardamon
on their own, flakes of flavor
combined, they are powerful mixtures.
Haitian, Japanese, and Swedish
long hair, short hair
eyes of coal or eyes of emerald.
each brings their own flavor
passionate, powerful
delicate and heady
explosive mixtures
intoxicating, exciting
the more we bring together, the more intricate
is the dish of our lives
white flour, brown sugar
spicy curry and savory bread
individuality sprinkled on top
a fine powder
of who we are and who we strive to be
together we can create
what alone we cannot find
