Pieces of Me...

I walked through the garden today, and I came upon a dragonfly sunning itself on a rose.

I watched it for a moment, just sitting there, being beautiful. A creature few people notice. And of those that do, so many people call it just a bug. Yet here it was, in the sunshine, nary a care. Sparkling with it’s blues and greens. It’s gossamer wings nearly invisible save for the slight rainbow sheen they displayed. How I envied that simple creature then. So carefree, so delicate, so bright.

I approached it, and smiling, greeted it gently. As if feeling my appreciation, it shook it’s little wings, light reflecting as if off a diamond. In a bold move, I held out my hand to it, and it stepped upon my finger and turned to look at me. I swear it was looking into my eyes, reading me, like some alien probing for answers. I giggled at the thought, and as I did, the dragonfly raised itself into the air, and flitted playfully around my head.

As I tried to follow its movements, I noticed another, and another come to play our game. Before long, my garden was filled with dozens of dragonflies. Frolicking, dancing, communing. It was beautiful. And then, as if called away by music heard only to them, they playfully flew off into the distance. A thousand tiny reflections of sunlight and rainbows. Tomorrow, I am planting more roses…
