 A Dragon Fly


He came to rest

At first, I wasn’t sure

Was he here for a cure?


His wings shivered

He tried to take flight

My Chihuahuas quivered.


A Dragon Fly

Colors of a rainbow

Beauty dies.


Intensely, I watched

Hoping for the best

He just came to rest.

That's okay. Your Chihuahuas were just being dogs. My Pomeranian, Jazz, was a great roach slayer. Unfortunately, Jazz was slain by a Labrador mix.

Besides, there is something sinister about dragonflies that I wrote about in a poem, too.

Reviewed by John Domino 5/30/2012
Dragonflies spend most of their lives in the larva stage (up to three years, depending on the species). The adult, winged stage only lasts a few weeks. Mating is the primary reason for their winged stage. So when you see a winged dragonfly, you know it's toward the end of its lifespan. Sad but true. Love you!
