Small Stone 21

today at the park
i watched hundreds
of dragonflies dance
just above the grass

as the wind would come up
they continued to fly
unfettered

i sat breathless
noticing that they only danced in sunlight
never choosing shadow

  2. They really are...and these ones were HUGE--like prehistoric dinosaur dragonflies. It was amazing!

  3. This was so lovely! They prefer the sun...maybe predators prefer the dark? I loved this!
