Mam's Best Broach
Dragonfly – your topaz dazzles
like a yellow winged darter,
flitting through my memories.
Merging with amethyst, you settle,
camouflaged against her plumb jacket.
Your wings recall the fairies
from the tales she told, frolicking
amongst the lavender and marigolds;
frequently, they danced into my dreams.
------- Author's Notes -------
A yellow winged darter is a type of dragonfly.

enables the reader to SEE the dragon fly and feel the sentiments behind the words. I especially liked the part about the fairies. Took me back to my days as a child, reminded me very much of my grandmother. Thanks for another beautiful poem.
