    leafy, tree lined lanes
    rich,  wild flower verges -
    damselfly sparkles...

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

ALONG

loch-studded moorland

bogs and runnels

and o'er the Highland Pass

antennae alert
I'll twist the wind

            to
              feed
                 my
                    Bonny
                         Lass...

Premium Member summer dissipates
summer dissipates 
viridescent willow wisps
frenzied honeybees

azure sky smiles
gnarly grasshopper singing
creeping violets 

discerning monarch 
damselfly competition
lilac fragrance wafts 

ethereal mist
supercilious confidence 
ushering autumn

melodic bird song 
sizzles saccharine summer
as she floats away

Premium Member She Might Come By if You are Silent
if you are silent
not merely quiet
but if you do not make a sound
she might come by

can I breathe
not loudly
and so we waited.
four afternoons in a row

she arrived on the fifth afternoon
landed on a verdent stalk
she was exquisite with faerie wings
prettiest damselfly I have ever seen

only damsel fly I have ever seen...

Premium Member Spring Garden Magic
Butterfly is late to the marigold patch
No one holds grudges, luckily
Gate clicks shut with a click of the latch

Farmer’s wife comes out to make a match
Gathering flowers to make pretty bouquet
Damselfly flies by too fast to catch

Garden’s produces carrots in a clump batch
Fat tomato worms hide themselves
On red ripe tomatoes they will soon attach

Premium Member Garden is Abuzz
Garden holds her breath as dragonfly magically appears.  The flowers begin tittering, hoping he is coming to visit them.  Her counterpart damselfly lands on a tea rose, who is feeling smug all of two seconds before they both flit off again. 


                              her cellophane wings
                         the whole garden is abuzz
                                    dragonfly visit
