damselfly, appreciation, flying, insect, joy,
If I had my way
I would come back
As a dragonfly
Strong and determined
Or maybe a damselfly
Dainty and graceful
I’d surf the sky
Every hour of the day
A Country Lane
leafy, tree lined lanes
rich, wild flower verges -
Dance of the Damselfly
damselfly, life, nature,
Across the moor
To Wicken Fen
Where brume swallows all
Into mire, of the life,
If I should find a Butterfly
damselfly, imagery, insect, nature, poetry,
If I should find a Butterfly,
Neath the Willow tree,
I’d recall how she’d been an ugly bug,
But now a wondrous, sight to see....
damselfly, animals, fantasy, imagination, inspirational,
Dragonfly Damsel engaging such wonder
Discovers a world between water and land
Magical enchantment her filmy wings stand
Refracting worlds beheld from another
Lucent pools echo translucent colors
damselfly, love, nature
bogs and runnels
and o'er the Highland Pass
I'll twist the wind
damselfly, blessing, wind,
Naught but a maze shall carry this
bound in cloud
through the tunnels of twigs
shall freedom range to the applause of leaves
Tangency poised on the ballet of...
Basking feast on bobbed wire,
The sun warms; next, flight.

I am my fathers son
I am my mothers daughter
Forged in Dragons Flame
Birthed in Neptunes Water
I hear the song of the Warrior
I dance to the warriors...
The Women of Tuskegee-Tuskegee Airmen
damselfly, black african american, history,
If you look behind his story
there’s a woman you will find.
Not in the struggle for the glory
but with a duty on her mind.
