Weary of waiting
for the dragonfly’s return,
daylight slips away.

  1. That is so nice. I feel kinda bad that I made out the dragonfly as a dragon but they have scared me as a child. Your ku is stunning and romantic.

  2. Missed you, MMT. I relate to the longing of waiting for something magical…beautiful…to return. Dragonflies have come to me at very healing times in my life. They also let me know I’m on the right path. Finally feeling back on the right path after a very shaky year.

  3. What a poignant verse..


  4. This is so true..even waiting for something good can be an ordeal.

  5. May be the dragonfly will return tomorrow 🙂

  6. Fabulous shot and magical words.
