Dragonfly

by Ruth

In the summer we have dragonflies flying across our pool and around the yard. They are a wonderful sight to see. They have long bodies, slender with four finely veined gossamer wings. Like a darning needle with their slender bodies.

They are brightly colored – some a brilliant yellow, others a lovely blue. They flutter across to quickly you just see a shadow of them. Later they land on a flower stalk for a short time.

I’m really impressed as they project happiness. Also we didn’t see them in New York, which didn’t mean we didn’t have them too.

I have heard they bring good luck. Perhaps they are drawn to the water. We enjoy them along with other sights and sounds of nature.
