The Dragonflies' Lair ~ Thread XXXIX~ June ~ July~ August
Poets of The Dragonflies' Lair | June 19, 2007 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 06/19/2007 6:14:42 PM PDT by Soaring Feather





My Dragonfly and Me





If I could be a Dragon Fly
and wing my way through the sky
I would never be shy
just me and my Dragon Fly!

By moonlight we ride the wind
chase the comets tail for fun
by day we would hide from the sun
our fragile wings would come undone

On darkest nights we would use
fireflies as our guide
we would dip and we would glide
through the heavens open wide
and scatter diamonds in the night sky
my Dragon Fly and me...

And we would wing past our lovers
silent in the night...
to kiss their face in our flight
much to their surprise and delight
my Dragon Fly and me in sight...

Such a view do we share
away up here in the air
of breezes soft through our hair
my Dragon Fly and me a pair...

Dore ~ Ancient Mariner
Years ago, I did a thread in the Canteen with the theme of The Spacecraft Magellan. This black and white is from the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner.
I combined two themes.

Tricks are for kids: A Eurasian crane chick pecks at morsels offered by a spoonbill at the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust in Slimbridge, England. The crane-breeding project uses mechanical adults so the baby birds won't imprint on humans.

A firefighter takes a moment after helping douse a fire that claimed the lives of nine of his comrades at a furniture warehouse in Charleston, S.C. The firemen were killed when the roof collapsed in what was described as a "tornado of flame."

A head for the horses: It's time again for England's Royal Ascot meeting, a series of horse races watched by uppercrust Brits in silly hats. Yevette Jelfs' lovely burlap-and-dead-fern ensemble was by no means the silliest.

Yes, very nice. ;)

Can you believe temps are going in the low 50s tonight, has not gotten out of the 60s today, yesterday it was in the 90s.

We had a light soaking rain most of the night last night, the thunder and lightning storm was not bad here, but certainly our cooler air is the result of one someplace.

I think that is going to be our weather this Summer. Last year was the crappiest weather, June and July the temps didn’t move much out of the 60s, it was damp from all the rain that came down. Clammy all the time, September was our Summer.
