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.

Busy Bees

the bees buzz loudly as
                       a noisy fan in the dead of night in
        a room of the sleeping. humid and dense
they roam from flower to flower
frantic, a quick  burst of energy 
taken by surprise
spiraling figure eights
then back again, another flower, 
humming along the ground
circling in the sky
never really slowing down
legs collecting pollen
in puffs of yellow
                    never a dull moment
surrounded by friends
       singing to themselves
a drone of work done and work
                not yet accomplished
