smooth glassy water
reflecting like a mirror
bending the light
beyond my sight
what will tomorrow bring
concentric ripples in a ring
dragonflies dart back and forth
sunshine on their wings

I love the wonderful summer images I’m getting from this one!

That’s partly why I wrote it, BV, ‘cos it’s SO cold here at the moment I had to cheer myself up, lol!

Nice word picture Denise. I enjoyed this.

Thanks, John, aren’t they just like helicopters! Swooping down and darting around…

Love these photos, along with the perfect poem to go with them! National Geographic always has the very best photography.
I posted three photos I took of dragonflies – of many colors last summer on the Outer Banks of North Carolina (along the shore). It was before I had gotten my DSLR camera, and only had my “point and shoot” but these three guys were fairly cooperative – although the blue would stay at the correct angle the best! 😀

They are too beautiful, Paula. I thought the one above best showed the gossamer wings… I still have to rely on my trusty mobile phone for photo’s, unfortunately!

Thank you, doc, for the visit and compliment!

A beautiful dancing rhythm to this….

Thanks, Kate. 🙂

What a stunning shot. OMG. I am in love with it. Sometimes when I see dragonflies I feel like crying because they are so exquisite. They seem to be creatures just completely full of joy. To be so bound to the water and the light must be a remarkable feeling.
I really like your rhythms too. So clever. I have seen them move in unison and it is a wondrous thing. One of your best!

Thank you so much, Selma. ‘Exquisite’ is exactly the right word! I get moved to tears by beauty too… and they do sometimes move in unison which I hadn’t noticed until you mentioned it. 🙂

Very uplifting and beautiful, adee.

Thank you, Cindy. 🙂

Stunning photograph and I love your poem; it lifts the soul – just like the dragonflies!

Thanks, Barb, I wish I could say I took the photo, but I found it on Photobucket.com.

Water reflecting is magical no matter how old I get! liked the whimsy here.
08/07/2011 at 5:23 am
I love it too! (as you will notice, I use it a lot). 🙂

Your lovely images here (words and photo) have a calming effect, Adee – a good way to start the day. Thx

Thank you, Bb. A lot of my posts are self-medicating, haha!

I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my trouble. You’re amazing! Thanks!

It is coincidence, Angila. Many people have similar experiences in life. I’m so glad you liked the poem. 😀
