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.

author comes

He walks to the middle of the room
Bag at his side, holding the book
His hair is thinning at the top but he seems
When his lips part, he captivates the audience
With his notecards he stands
This book is...ehhh...about...
Simply wonderful
The author begins to speak of journeys
philosophers and atoms
Ancient times with scribes and
Malicious people too.
A way of life, a radical solution
He has found the way of the universe
In an old text
A latin poem
He says the beauty of the words
Is immense
As the universe that spreads around us
With so many other worlds apart
From our own.
The author stops and thanks
The audience and signs books
Smiles wearily
Is congratulated for his successes
Leaves with a
ring of the bell
hanging above the door.
