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.

Five Sentence Fiction: Coincidence.

Every morning at ten of eight, I bustle across the street with a bright scarf and a smile, swing open the diner door with a tinkle, and sit at the stool closest to the window. I order a hot chocolate with whipped cream, and anxiously check my hair in the mirror behind the counter while I wait. He comes out, wiping hands on his snowy apron, smiling with glittering teeth and running fingers through his wavy hair while carefully holding my cup in the other hand. Coincidence? His smile makes my heart flutter.

I have not gotten around to FSF in quite a while, and I am glad that I have time not that I am on vacation. This is my first try in a long time, so I hope it is ok. 



  1. Glad you are back doing these Claire. The 5 sentence fiction are great for keeping us moving and trying new things with our writing, aren't they. Really liked your story :))

    You changed your blog too! I find it easier to read your text so I think it's a great change!

  2. Hello! Nice story. I look forward to reading more of your 5SF.

  3. A good piece that takes me back to the days when I went through those agonies of 'does he, doesn't he?'

  4. Oh, I've been that girl :) Lovely story!!


Thanks so much for reading my piece. I am always looking for inspiring words, suggestions, and feelings you got from reading this. Please leave your thoughts here.
