did you know that the dragonfly is one of the few ( and perhaps the only?)
creature(s) who can function
in air on land in/on water
that it can fly forwards & backwards
hover and dance
that its wings can hum and sing
are transparent & iridescent

that it might be that it once was
a dragon...
that as tough and versatile as it is
it has no sting
the old soul re-born in the body of now
I see you in your many elements
spinner of tales and fire
teacher poet learning dwelling
no wonder you have such an affinity for these
not so distant relatives
dance on...


  1. Talented evolved species. I would that mankind could be so versatile.

  2. Gerry and Timmy--thanks for the kind words; I liked putting this one together.
    WM-- I totally agree on the versatility front...if only humans could move in so many places and spaces in so many ways, perhaps there might be a shift in how some uni- directional interpersonal encounters unfold.
    Jadedj-- glad you can relate!
    thanks for the comments, all...

  3. This is such an emotional aspiration..
    attainable in spirit...
    Beautifully done

  4. Linda-- nice to see you; thanks for the comments and the hopefulness.

  5. I am liking the Dragonfly more with your words written. Lovely, you.

  6. SarahA--thanks for this... hope you are having meaningful summer time....now that a significant transition has been just about achieved for me, I am hoping to be writing much more... I feel it bubbling!
