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.

I have a truth to tell
I have a truth to tell.
When the rain dances down to the pavement
Sometimes sideways in the wind, always falling to the earth in time
And the cars make whooshing noises as they pass with headlights glowing in the late afternoon. When thunder laughs, deep in its throat and tosses lightning carelessly downward, and the green of leaves is so bright against the grey that it blinds.
These are the moments of clarity, when the water swirls around ankles in the gutters and there is a simple peace sitting by a window.
This is my serenity.
