December 2, 2013 Imaginary Garden with Real Toads


Fire Engine Red
In winter now
Winds blow
Snow Falls
We don our coats
And our hats
Pull on gloves
Snuggle down
Like bear
Who slumbers
In her den


Yet, we remember
Sunny days of summer
Your presence
In a desert valley
Flying above small streams
You dance with me
You sing to me
You knit the world
The darning needle
The Red Dragon Fly







Note:  From the internet.


DRAGONFLY
Illusion, the Power
 of Light
Dragonfly is the power
 of light.
The dragonfly inhabits
 two realms:
 air and water
and the influence of
 both these
 elements will be felt
 by Dragonfly
 people.
They will be emotional
 and passionate during
 their early years
 (the influence of water)
and more balanced 
with greater mental clarity
and control in as
they
 mature (the
 influence of air). 
Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change,
the messages of wisdom and enlightenment; and the communication

 from the elemental world.
 Dragonfly medicine beckons you to seek out the parts of your habit
 which need changing.
Call on Dragonfly to guide you through the mists of illusion
 to the pathway of transformation.
The number 2 is important to Dragonfly,
so think in terms of two year periods when

 you begin a change.
Dragonfly brings the light and color of

 transformation into your life.

I had an experience with a red dragonfly,
 several years ago....time is so illusive...
I'm really not sure, has it been two years ago, 
or three years ago.  
I knew the dragonfly suggested change, 
but now I don't remember...
is it always hard to see change when 
we are looking back?  
It seems things have always been this way.

The red of winter and summer unite the first in a pleasing symmetry. Did you write both of these (Your note says "from the internet"). I could only read parts of the second as the print merges with the sidebar. Dragonfly connects to the red dragon of your "Fire Engine Red" poem, though.

I love the flight in this poem...and your wonderful closing lines. Love dragonflies!

is it hard to see change? Nice question with a lot of different answers. Some we do, some only in retrospect.
