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.

Midnight snack run
Bolting down cheesecake, gluttony re-imagined
The fridge swings open she eats with abandon
Harsh white light illuminates her face


White dawn approaches on stealthy feet
Mist enshrouds the house as specters walk
With heavy tread upon the roof


Alarm clock sings to call
In the new day
She is awakened by the red numbers
By her bed and up to the bathroom
The empty plate stares from the sink during


The wind sounds strange
As it rushes under her car on the highway
She feels small
Against the truckers and tourists and commuters
Suddenly minuscule against
The charcoal sky
