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...

August rushes by like desert rainfall,
A flood of frenzied upheaval,
Expected,
But still catching me unprepared.
Like a matchflame
Bursting on the scene,
Heat and haze of crimson sunsets.
Like a dream
Of moon and dark barely recalled,
A moment,
Shadows caught in a blink.
Like a quick kiss;
One wishes for more
But it suddenly turns to leave,
Dragging summer away.


- Elizabeth Maua Taylor

~Good Ole Summertime~
Lovely poem and graphic,too.
Our summer doesn't really end and fall begin until October. Last Thanksgiving weekend here was "no sweater" weather,too..I recall my neighbor's tree was a vision of gold and orange.

Very intriguing. When I used to caress my guitar, the only thing I remember was the dog howling. No, wait a minute, it must have been my singing. LOL.

I heard a guitar should look like a woman.

I don’t know many women with no arms, no legs, a long neck and 6 ears. *hehe*

You coulda done what I did and not sing along.

When I caressed my guitar, the last thing I thought of was women.

I was banned from the house and made to sing in the garage. I may have been singing the “Mean Woman Blues” but I cannot remember. Things like that happen when one gets as old as I am. LOL.

Been out of the link for a while, bit under the weather
back up to speed (or at least as much speed as I can get up to these days!)

My cat, passed on a while back, and so this poem.

Ode to a Cat

Black faced
Shorthaired royalty
With a tri-color coat of regal shading
Attitude, all attitude
And enough kitten to entice you
Twelve years in her reign
or eighty-four in her years
yet, it was not enough
so her passing was rough
so there was and will be tears
but we had to stop the pain
as only love would let us do
so I say it wasn’t easy dude
and the memories are far from fading
for the depth of love you see
sets memory’s pace

Sorry to hear your kitty passed on, it was best to not let the cat suffer.

Hope you will return to hail health soon.

I am so sorry..Take care. I have a poem and picture I'll post.

Wild Sweet Peas..Near The Beach At Sunset

Before Sunset by Algernon Charles Swinburne

Love's twilight wanes in heaven above,
On earth ere twilight reigns:
Ere fear may feel the chill thereof,
Love's twilight wanes.

Ere yet the insatiate heart complains
'Too much, and scarce enough,'
The lip so late athirst refrains.

Soft on the neck of either dove
Love's hands let slip the reins:
And while we look for light of love
Love's twilight wanes.

Feel better, Feather!


 


Inspiration
 

 

 

How often have I started out
With no thought in my noodle,
And wandered here and there about,
Where fancy bade me toddle;
Till feeling faunlike in my glee
I've voiced some gay distiches,
Returning joyfully to tea,
A poem in my britches.

A-squatting on a thymy slope
With vast of sky about me,
I've scribbled on an envelope
The rhymes the hills would shout me;
The couplets that the trees would call,
The lays the breezes proffered . . .
Oh no, I didn't think at all -
I took what Nature offered.

For that's the way you ought to write -
Without a trace of trouble;
Be super-charged with high delight
And let the words out-bubble;
Be voice of vale and wood and stream
Without design or proem:
Then rouse from out a golden dream
To find you've made a poem.

So I'll go forth with mind a blank,
And sea and sky will spell me;
And lolling on a thymy bank
I'll take down what they tell me;
As Mother Nature speaks to me
Her words I'll gaily docket,
So I'll come singing home to tea
A poem in my pocket.

Robert W. Service

My new computer is fine..I am learning a little more about it every day..I have all my desktop files on a thumb drive so I can choose to use this one anywhere..I like it best for reading..I’d rather do most of my graphics and posting sitting at the desktop. I had to rest my back after using the heavy pruners and saw yesterday and enjoyed having the computer in bed.

Sea Change

Deep, deep, oh is this, the dark blue sea
Washing upon the shore here beside me
And I watch hypnotic waves as they flee
Across the beach of Time seeking the lee

As on high the gulls cry as if in some pain
And on the horizon the clouds hint of rain
A conflict that mimics humans calm and sane
Or depicts the possibilities twix dull and fain

Many thanks, you did it up most nice!

Meditating under an Arbor

As soft as silk the caressing breeze
Whispering among the flowers
Carries the scent of life in the garden
Under a cerulean sky we share

Amazing how we’ve come to care
And find so much at last to ken
Be it in a garden or an ivory tower
Or a bench under the linden trees
