Dancing with Dragonflies

Seeing
the perfection
of colors blended
from earth and sky

Hearing
the crunch
underneath
a different song

Smelling
the sweetness
of plants
I cannot name

Touching
the truth
of beauty
grown not made

Tasting
the sensation
of joy
touch my lips

Feeling
the fabric
of separateness
begin to tear

Releasing
the need
to need
anything else

I am
dancing
with dragonflies

Westward, I go. Next stop, the coast. Thank you for visiting! Be well. πŸ’— Michele

    1. Well, that is quite a lovely comparison. Thank you, Phil. They blend so well, it is hard to capture the tiny ones with a lens, even when there are dozens of them. Best to put down the camera and dance! Have a wonderful Friday! 🌻

    Honey Michele, what a beautiful poem, and these last lines said it all. Dragonflies are some awesome creatures. I love how they hover in the air like a remote control drone. And your photos are priceless. πŸ“Έ I love the pop of color. This place is so tranquil and inviting.

    This is such a jolt of nature-inspired love πŸŒΊπŸ’πŸŒ»πŸŒΉπŸŒΌ that added to my grass cutting and yard duty today! LOL πŸ˜˜πŸ’–πŸ€©πŸ’‹πŸ₯°

    1. Thank you for the smiles, Kymbelina. 😁 A perfect description of the little creatures! I was surrounded by dozens of tiny drones near the water’s edge. An amazing sight! Yes, the pinks and purples are gorgeous. Breathtaking in the sunlight! Grass cutting and yard duty sound breathtaking too, for different reasons. πŸ˜† I am sure your yard is amazing! 😍 I will be right over for some lemonade. 😁 That would be lovely. Enjoy your weekend, lovely. Don’t work too hard! πŸ˜… πŸ€—πŸ˜˜ 😎

        May your weekend be filled with little inspirations and that produce great influence in all you do, write, and say. Hugs and smooches my Dancing Queen. Of course you know what to incorporate in this weekend’s activities right? πŸ’ƒπŸΌπŸŽ΅πŸŽΈπŸŽ€πŸŽ·πŸŽΆπŸ’ƒπŸ½

    1. Thank you, Dwight! I am glad you enjoyed my post. I love your comment! I suppose you could say the dragonfly was my guide and dance partner. πŸ’ž The refollow- I don’t know why that happens?? That has also happened to me with others. Thanks for following me, again. 😁 Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you very much, Aaysid. πŸ’— Yes, they are! The one in my photo was interesting – with the naked eye, the transparent part of its wings looked like a void. Only through the photo could I see the intricate webbing of its see-through wings. Thank you for the visit!
