Dragonfly Days


A beautiful creature haunted
my childhood
by in and on the Thames
with glistening blue and green
hovering among  willow fronds.

 Faraway West in Canada a friend photographed a different coloured dragonfly. https://insearchofitall.wordpress.com/

  4. Thank you for using my photo of the very first dragonfly I’ve ever seen. It was the most mystical experience I’ve ever had as that beautiful creature stopped and posed for me. Even my son was stunned that I got that photo one handed with a point and shoot camera. The other hand is on the cane. 🙂 I loved your poem with it.

    There certainly is something quite enchanting about dragonflies. I used to fancy, as a kid, that they were fairies in disguise.
