Little Dragonfly - Seeking Light

artwork by Ulrike Bolenz


Within the dragon she hears a song
to thee the flowering blossoms belong
she a poetess, releasing her inner beast
for within his sultry words she did feast
dancing in the shadows of  his dark silhouette
the love she felt she could never forget
with claw and fire they did cling
misty evenings, nightingales would  sing
  in a magical world they took flight
soaring together towards beams of light
she loved him with a true heart
he had another, her wings were torn apart
for in the moment she thought he cared
carrying treasures the joy they shared
 she flutters about, making her way
stars and moon fade into another day
through darken skies
her heart silently cries

  6. It is a sad story - to love the one that has already been taken. But perhaps her time will come and she will find the love that she has spent her life waiting on.

    1. Hmm..interesting...dragonflies are creatures of wind and water and of the dreaming mind. Who knows which way the wind will blow on any given day?
