The Dragonfly

The Dragonfly

A Poem by Voice11
"

Intense beauty

"

 

It Struck me like Lightening

 

Beauty in it's purest form

 

Flying like a spirit passed me

 

that Creature made of the Goddess

 

The Dragonfly!

 

But not just any Dragonfly,

 

Captivating colors looking like 

 

that of

 

a hummingbird

 

Blends of blues and greens

 

and shining pinks sparkling

 

in the sunlight.

 

It pulled my heart from me

 

and brought me to my knees

 

with every movement of its

 

acrobatic flight.

 

Teasing me like a lover

 

Coming so close towards me...

 

I could almost touch it....

 

for an instant, my heart stops.

 

Then just as fast it pulls away

 

and soars high into the sky!

 

I almost cried out in frustration

 

at the endless torture.

 

I stared openly, like a love

 

struck fool

 

hands held out,

 

just begging

 

for it to rest upon me

 

for one mere second.

 

Instead I watch as

 

it flies farther and farther away from me

 

Saddened,  I stand

 

Free from its spell.

 

I walk home in a daze

 

but with hope

 

in my heart and in my head

 

that one day I could capture

 

even a small escence of

 

a beauty such as that

 

of the Dragonfly.

Wow this is amazing, great imagery in this.

This made me think, of nature's beauty and the wonders of creation! Also, the "free" life of a dragonfly, fits with the concept, of a "free spirit". The imagery is probably the main strength of this poem, actually. Also, I see the escape of this beautiful natural creation (the dragonfly), as a reminder of how love can sometimes fly away, and leaves us standing! In addition, how beauty can sometimes be so difficult for a woman to keep hold of, no matter how strong her yearning might be.

Thankyou, Voice11! A lovely poem, although it does meander a little in places, lacks a true structure and rhyming scheme. Keep writing, my friend!

one part dragon,one part feelings,add two parts fantasy,stir in one part love,and mix well...
serve with garnishments of butterflies and water lilly,with some pond frog on the pads.
