A Dragonfly - Poem by Theresa Ann Moore

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
