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 sun rises and sets
Several times I feel
Alone in a vast space
My dreams are barren and
Crying out for someone to find me
In waking hours
I study and
Feel like the Sandman
Has visited me once too often
Sprinkling grit into my eyes
Making my shoulders droop
When they should not
I wish it were over
Wish I could sit down and write
Letting the loneliness go along
With the steady stream of papers and
How ready I am for
A summer of no regrets
To sing and dance on the cool grasses
And gaze up at the sky
