How To Do It Frugally

The new book in my (with Magdalena Ball) series of seasonal celebration chapbooks of poetry. The perfect $6.95 Father's Day gift.

This is a reminder to enjoy the men in our lives when we can...


How little I know of dragonflies,
how they come in August,
leave again without a word,
wonder where they live when I canít
see them, whether they sting, whether
that is a song they sing
or a warning.

This dragonfly, small, the first Iíve seen
dressed in amber and gold sunlight,
joins me in a swim, skims
the waterís surface, divebombs.

Then comes
anotheróthis one familiar
opal, much larger, mating perhaps,
two of them faster than one.
I duck to avoid them, frightened,
feel the water close over
my head. I choke, inhale air.
The things I didnít know
about my father, his coming and goings,
the fearing he would not return.
One day, only a dawn or decade ago,
he didnít.

Loved this Carolyn. Would very much like to read your new book.
Let me know when it is out. Sorry, I haven't written you lately.
I've had a lot of Sciatica pain. So happy tomorrow is first day of
spring. Luv Joyce
