So short the life of the dragonfly
I wonder if it knows of it's own mortality
It's life, but a breath of a few months

So free and easy it glides from place to place
Hunter, trapper, deadly foe
Alighting gently on a blade of grass

I watch it's effortless flight as it moves on
Perhaps another target in it's sight
Such beauty, barely escaping it's own inevitable plight

didn't know

That dragonflies had such short life spans.

What I like about a dragonfly is that it minds its own business and doesn't buzz around you like bees, yellow jackets and hornets.

Nice poem about nature Dreamer.
