Creative Interpretations - Mosquito Hawk

You really gotta be a Floridian to know a Dragonfly by that name!

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mosquito Hawk

These are very interesting little creatures. I've had them light on an outstretched finger.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Mosquito Hawk

In response to Steves comment about his outstretched finger. Shot me back in time so I went through my poetry journal to find this. Thanks for the memory Steve.


Dragonflies

I remember
Sitting on the tailgate
Of my dad’s red, Ford, pick-up
Barely big enough to get up there
By myself
The air was cold
I could see my breath
The sun was seeing
The light was golden
Then they came
Dragonflies
Lots of them
Hundreds, thousands probably
They surrounded me
Like a swarm of fairies
Sun shining on them
And on my face
My skin was very warm
They settled on me
One at a time
Touching lite as a feather
On my arms
On my face
A heavenly feeling
They were eating mosquitos from my skin

That's quite good Sweetlight. Seeing your quote from "A River Runs Through It" I thought you might just be into nice things done with words.

Thanks for posting.
