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.

patches of sunlight slide across
the room; bars of gold drifting
toward my face


a laugh a smile a nod
in a second, the friendship is secure

Moments of Majesty

there are moments
shifting, like the patches of shade in a forest
where you feel a spark
a time of peace in a world of endless hustle and bustle
disconnecting yourself
watching the sun set over the water
finding the tips of the misty mountains at dawn
afterwards, there is a hush of understanding inside of you
then a rush to share the peace
with others just like you
