Smile of a dragonfly


did you know that dragonflies smile?

I met one today

we sat for a while

his large eyes met mine

then ... he nodded, lifted his head ...

and I saw it!

I laughed and smiled right back

and said with all my heart,

"It's so good to meet you today."

we sat for a while

happy to sit on the stalk

content to kneel by the path

with kind eyes I adored him ...

the breeze whispered, "I love you" and carried him away.
