a golden dragonfly flitted crossed my yard

on argent wings as melodic as a bard

he came to rest among the sunset honeysuckle

and in that moment my lips parted in a chuckle

to see such a delicate sprite

that can dance and shimmer in midday’s light

arrest its wings and ground its soul

here together atop this emerald knoll

overlooking cerulean streams

and a verdant orchard that teems

with cardinal fruits ripe for plunder

this afternoon has me filled with wonder

i have seen nature’s beauty unmarred

ever since that dragonfly flitted crossed my yard
