the kingdom of the dragonfly


‘we couldn’t find a parking spot in town, so we drove to the end of the bird sanctuary and sat on the bench facing the waterline, i remember coffee steam from take out cups. your little dog curled between us and we took turns holding a hand on her tummy feeling her warm. the air was green cast like a summer storm, and the geese were practicing formation flight, autumn is a breath away. we talked of aging parents in altered states, of sisters in the drowning pool, children grown into the big world and partners wondering who they married. we are in the middle zone where so many people in our lives hold our hearts in trembling hands. but here in the dragonfly kingdom, flitting in the sun on gossamer wings, there is clarity of time, this breath, this green sky sun, in this moment what is there to do but go gently in the breeze.’


symbols and meanings.

The dragonfly, in almost every part of the world symbolizes change and change in the perspective of self realization; and the kind of change that has its source in mental and emotional maturity and the understanding of the deeper meaning of life. – web search ; learn about nature.


A headline phrase today on an animal rescue story, ‘on her journey to discover her own true self’ has stayed in my mind. Not everything is as it seems. It is all a matter of perspective.
