December 5, 2013 deVerse

deVerse  Prompt:  A poem of 55 words

The Red Dragon Fly
Winds blow
Snow Falls
We don coats
And hats
Pull on gloves
Snuggle down
Like bear
Who slumbers
In her den

Yet, remember
Sunny days
Of summer
Your presence
In a desert valley
Fly above
Small streams
You dance
You sing
You knit the world
Darning needle
The Red Dragon Fly

Note:  I have rewritten this poem to meet the prompt of 55 words, not including the title.

Even in the dead of winter, we do remember sunny days. And yes, the importance of dancing and knitting the world together!

Gabriella said...

I like the contrast between the two seasons and the way you tied the two together with the color red.

Brian Miller said...

i like the knitting of the world...and we can do that regardless of the season...sometimes i pine for the sun as well..but try to appreciate what each season has to offer...

i will fix your link...smiles.

My son used to have a fire engine red winter coat :) Nice contrast between the two stanzas - and I like the idea of the red dragon fly as a darning needle, knitting the world!

sweetness & longing, sadness neath dark cloud bellies, your 55 has legs & heart; thanks.

I must second Margaret's take on the dragon fly as darning needle. What a cool idea, what a zig-zagged world they would knit.

I like that flash of red through all the monochrome winter landscape, which brings back memories of summer dragonflies. Nicely done!

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I love "you knit the world - darning needle - red dragon fly" Beautiful and uplifting.

Great balancing between the seasons, and an artful use of contrast in the bright and muted colors as well.

Taking time off.....

I am taking some time off from posting on my blog.  I am studying, practicing, have so much to learn....
