Red, devil’s needle,
Or luck bringer with kind eyes?
Ancient, sweet fellow,
Sacred magic bestower,
Change tumbling on fragile wings.
I added the last line as the dragonfly has such a short life like the butterfly and change can be fragile unless we encourage and nurture it and learn to be our better self.
This is my contribution to Colleen’s poetry challenge, inspired by an encounter with a dragonfly.
I will be writing about this soon on our collaborative blog The Sisters of The Fey.
