Black and Yellow Dragonfly

Black and Yellow Dragonfly

Black and Yellow Dragonfly

( Free Style Verse)

.

.

A dragonfly

With a big white eye

Alights

.
A handsome fellow

Black and yellow

See through wings

Delicate things

.
I might mention

A dandelion in its sights

Seems to be the object of its attention

.
I ponder

And wonder

About its intention.

.
In a funny way

It seems to say

.
Open up

Buttercup

That I might sup

The nectar in your cup.

I’ll lap it up

.
A dragonfly

With a big white eye

Alights

.

Author Notes While out for a walk in the park with my wife, a dragonfly alighted nearby. I took its picture. It is so cute, I was inspired to write this little poem.
This dragon fly is named a Dot-tailed Whiteface, Leucorrhinia intacta. I think the name says it all.


This poem is free verse, in that there is no formal structure. It does contain rhyme, but not to any fixed pattern.


I took this photograph on June 23, 2013 while on a walk with my wife at Battle Creek Park in Maplewood, Minnesota, a suburb of St. Paul.
