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.

It takes rock bottom

It takes rock bottom
To see the sky
Only when you have truly reached
The depths can you look upward
And only upward
Towards the clouds and the deep azure
It takes crying and screaming
Tearing your hair out
Or silently hating yourself
It takes weakness
True weakness
To find strength
It takes a week of rain
To see sunshine
Seven days of being inside
Listless and upset
Countless puddles and cars
That splash you as you come outside
Rain doesn't last forever
The clouds will move past
And you will find the sun
It takes rock bottom
To see the sky
