The Dragonflies' Lair~Thread XXXXI
Poets of the Dragonflies' Lair | August 9, 2007 | Soaring Feather

Posted on 08/06/2007 3:44:50 AM PDT by Soaring Feather





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...

Thank You for the tribute pictures, some of us will never forget, but as Lady Jag said. “Many have fallen asleep.”

The threat is still very much alive, we must always be vigilant.

RE: "I love the graphic"
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1876949/posts?page=899#899

Great! ...I was hoping you might want to grab a copy of that image for 'later use'. (I can upload a higher-res version of that image for you if you need something better.) Never can tell when something like that might be needed again (...hint...hint) (Naw...no pressure! ...grin)

HIS 'Graphics', Not Mine
In a place where The Lord sends dramatic Fall weather,
There, in the afternoons, the clouds come together,
dark and ominous, yet fringed with HIS light.
With portent of thunder, of lightning, HIS might!
In that place, traveling West along (HIS) King Avenue,
'Feather Place', to the seeker, will come into view.
If the afternoon rains don't make you lose sight…
Look closely. Don't miss it! …It's a turn to the right.
Those 'Big Skies', those Big Clouds -- I gave you a clue.
Did you guess that the photo was from 59102?

I did grab a copy of Feather Place
it’s grand with it’s heavenly view
the connections are made there
so Feather beware, in those clouds
of solace and peace.
