Dragonfly

Written by: Louise Picek

Fairy tales glide on dragonfly wings, 
skimming across the bubbling streams, 
growing to a new world to bloom
castles and queens, 
princes too.
Shimmering dew sprays faintly on its back,
causing the tale to mirror itself. 
It lands on a young one's head
and dreams skitter about in the innocent mind. 
The dragonfly lifts into the wind; 
there is yet another flight 
as the fairy tale continues to emerge in the sky, 
unsuspectingly to the modest dragonfly.
