Dragonfly Memories

I sit in the warm fall sun
 and watch the
Their lives ending in 
a flash of 
red and blue;
a spectacular finale.
Lighting upon the rocks
 around me,
I wait for the perfect moment
to get closer with
my camera;
to get the perfect shot.
One lightly lands,
and its delicacy amazes me.
I lean in and quietly 
capture that moment.
I blink,
and the dragonfly flies off,
leaving me with a picture
and a memory.

  • this photo was taken at the Brickworks, an amazing nature preserve
  • it was in October, and all the dragonflies made an awesome sight
