I write what I feel…



Dragonflies Pictures, Images and Photos


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 am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

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


  2. Nice word picture Denise. I enjoyed this.
    nature’s helicopters!

    Thanks John


  3. 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!


  4. ah dragonflies are so cool! great bit of reflection both in the surface and deeper adee


  5. Beautiful imagery. Thanks, Denise.


  6. A beautiful dancing rhythm to this….


  7. 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. 🙂


  8. Very uplifting and beautiful, adee.


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


  10. Water reflecting is magical no matter how old I get! liked the whimsy here.


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


  12. 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!
