poetry by j matthew waters

the dragonfly’s calling

stitch and sew
your restless eyes
dragonfly hovers
keeping its cool

no bark no bite
mandibles chew air
swallowing suggestions
blown by the wind

water nymph no more
final metamorphosis
captures soul mate
perpetuating the cycle

september two thousand sixteen

    I have a deep connection with dragonflies. To me, they’re a symbol of being on the right path. 🙂

  3. Those mandibles… quite useless in the end I guess.
