My Acrobat Of The Sky - Poem by Patricia Kelley

I was standing in the backyard minding my own business, when a flirty little blue dragonfly with delicate iridescent wings appeared.

I knew right then, that he must have been the same one that had entertained the thoughts of kings.

Just when I thought he was finished with his flips, he reappeared.

Here he was acting as an acrobat sailing high through the ocean blue sky with his accurate spins.

Oh, how I loved to watch him fly!

I just stood there frozen with a sigh.

Then just when I thought he disappeared,

He surprised me by landing on my left sun-kissed arm.

I looked at him, and said no worry, I bid the no harm.

I took my forefinger from my right hand and stroked lightly on his delicate back.

He raised his back, what and act.

I knew then that I had me a new winged friend.

I just stood there and stared.
