~~ The Dragonfly~~
The dragonfly glides through the breeze Like a parachutist from a plane floating floating... through the air~ Swirling upward like leaves in a breeze Landing carefully gracefully... on the soft ripples of the peaceful pond~ Suddenly the dragonfly is off again twisting, twirling... on an invisible current That only she can feel and as she performs her show I know it's meant only for me~ She spins and glides on gossamer wings graceful as any dancer~ Finally she tires and lights upon a log her wings fluttering in some invisible breeze~ All I do is smile grateful to witness her amazing show As I turn to walk away I leave the glittering dancer to her rest~
Author's Notes:
I always used to watch these graceful dragflys dance and glide over my grandparents pond was out that way last week on a beautiful fall day saw one shimmering in the breeze and had to write a poem about one Hope you all enjoy it Thanks Susan~~

Brings back memories of my days at Cedar Lake.  You've captured the mood, exactly.

Yes, this reminds me of when I was a kid growing up on the farm; there were always butterflies in the spring and summer. I think they are some of natures prettiest creations. Beautiful poem that you have written about them.

This was delightful, reminded me of trips to Lake Havasu as a kid,there were always tons of dragonflys out on the lake. Well written with a nice rhythm and flow!

Memories take us back to days past.
It's wonderful to revisit those moments,
through coincidence or happen-chance.
All the best, Jamieson 10/20/03
