Treasure Island

Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

A Dragonfly


Your delicate wings rapidly beat the air
The sleekness of your weightless body hovers
Curiously observing as though you care
Steadily searching for lifelong endeavors

Do you bring a message of a tranquil destiny?
Does your evolving maturity convey wisdom?
If I follow, will I find harmony or perplexity?
As you disappear… I am serenely lonesome

    Observing dragon flies one is forced to think on the comparaitive life spans of creatures. Men tend to live a long time but often learn very little I wonder what dragon flies think about observing humans (Report) Reply
