Red Dragon on a Yellow Leaf


Red Dragon on a Yellow Leaf
Originally uploaded by Lady-bug.
A brilliant red dragonfly came along
and made my heart sing a little song.
He landed nearby on a fuzzy leaf of green.
the brightest dragon I've ever seen.
He moved his eyes as my camera clicked. . .
a nicer spot we couldn't have picked.
After awhile I just sat and stared
I talked to him, and he really cared.
I reached down finally, and put my camera away.
He then flew off without delay.
"Thank you", I thought, as I got off the ground.
That little dragon had me quite spellbound!
Some time later I had such a surprise . . .
My dragon came back to socialize.
He came and landed on a bright yellow leaf.
I blinked my eyes in disbelief.
I quietly took my camera out again
before he'd take off like a tiny airplane.
He posed so nicely for another minute . . .
the colors just right, and perfectly lit.
I thanked him again as he flew away.
This dragonfly has made my day.
