Treasure Island

Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Broken Wing

Majestic is the dragonfly
With rapid flapping wings
Hovers, moves and flies
Delightful for us to watch.

Fascinating were dragonflies
As children we always chased
Felt as if I could catch one
But it always flew away.

Walking in grass I saw a slender
Body with a tail, it was a dragonfly
Its spherical eyes pleaded for help
It was one with a broken wing.

I imagined life with a broken wing
What a hell this life would be
Helpless I was to extend help
Compassion flowed from the heart.
