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 Coming of Spring

the coming of spring
means storm windows stowed away
barefoot running in the grass
premature use of the sprinkler
sunbathing in the grass and feeling
warmth on your face
tank tops and coral colored
toe nails
photos filled with sun
guinea pigs enjoying fresh grass
and a lightheartedness
heralded by it all
a skip and a hop
outside in the spring
