To The Dragonfly

to-the-dragonfly

An Apology

It was a notorious impulse;

But not an intention to hurt your wings,

I know you are an excellent flier

Performing your life-rituals in the mid air!

But a loss of limb,

Is an injury to one’s self-esteem.

And I shall repent forever,

For the evil I did.

I haven't seen a Dragonfly in years. I am sure it was by accident. I enjoyed your poetry. You have given me a different view of nature. Have a wonderful day.
