We love her slender abdomen,
dressed in metallic green,
with small black dots just like sequins,
she is the beauty queen.

Her wings appear delicate
but they are stiff and strong
and deliver lots of power
for her to speed along.

Another asset is her eyes,
large domes upon...Read More

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.

Now meet The Women of Tuskegee.
Tuskegee Airmen they are named.
Lost within the clouds of time.
Not a movie...Read More

Premium Member Science Lesson From a Mayfly
Damselflies are dainty, they are wisest of the wise.
Dragonflies a bit dumpy, much bigger than you and I.
I am a three-tailed Mayfly, so I am an expert in flies.
You can call me a Stonefly, but only if your name is...Read More

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 tune
I am known as the Healer
I am the guardian at high noon

Premium Member FULL FLIGHT

If I had my way
I would come back
As a dragonfly
Strong and determined
Or maybe a damselfly
Dainty and graceful
Either way
I’d surf the sky
Every hour of the day
And hover
Over drifting waterlilies
The whole night through
In the magic of moonlight
I’d circle with my awesome wings
I’d...Read More

Her swift and wondrous gait   enthralls
upon  the light  of lightest evening--
bedecked  in turquoise- gold  finery
sewn by earth’s intricate handiwork...
a mature nymph hovers along the pond
to  relish  delicacy of ornate leaves:

Premium Member If I should find a Butterfly
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. 
If I could talk to a Dragonfly, 
Hovering by the water spring, 
We’d talk...Read More

Wind Eater
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 grass
such hurricane stanzas embrace
these burnished strings of delicate harp
or sigh replete in the arms of...Read More

Into mire, of the life,

Damselfly respite.
Basking feast on bobbed wire,
The sun warms; next, flight.

Gossamer Flyer~
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
Iridescent gossamer winged flyer
Damselfly dance into the sun higher
Filling us with fervor as she hovers
