The Dragonfly


one magic day through sunset rays

and gorgeous billowed cloud displays,

I chanced to spot a dragonfly

mere inches from my eyes.

for reasons I had yet to know

I uttered forth a soft "Hello",

then waved my hand to gesture so

and much to my surprise,

with wings of high velocity,

and patient curiosity,

it hovered even closer by

to show I’d gained its trust.

within its bright and knowing eyes,

I touched on something old and wise,

then spoke about life’s beauty,

and the beauty in us all.

the seconds seemed as moments,

as it chose to not depart.

it lingered for that precious time

I’ll carry in my heart.

by touching one another’s souls

and briefly sharing inner roles,

there came a lesson to explore,

"what life is truly granted for".

for on that day a bond was made,

life’s curtain drew, the parts were played.

one creature and one open man

were graced to touch the master plan.

Beautifulloy written... I am sending u something i wrote.

In science one tries to tell people, in such a way as to be understood by everyone, something that no one ever knew before. But in poetry, it's the exact opposite.

Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Czech writer.
