Dragon Fly

I see a Dragonfly flutter by on a whisper in the breeze

Coming ever so close now for you to see me, almost as if to tease.

I see you with all your wonderful colors bold and bright,

Makes me curious, where do you go in the night?

You fly around by day ever so silent, a glimpse of you here and there

Flying around every day and everywhere as if you haven’t a care.

You act as if you heard me, now you and have come to stare.

Eyes so big, wow what a scare for smaller insects to see this glare

That Sweet Wonder of Seeing.

When at last you stop fleeing,

That sweet wonder of seeing,

finally… what was always there,

whether here or anywhere.


To be  content with just this,

no longer feeling that you miss,

wishing for nothing more,

the inner self no longer sore.


To love yourself and everyone,

dancing, laughing, having fun!

Awestruck by each starting dawn.

Watching dew melt on the lawn.


The birds, your friends, are everywhere.

Whistled notes soar through the air,

fashioning rainbows into song.

Was there ever anything wrong???
