Poem 0164: dragonfly 1

Today, if I could be any creature of my choosing,
I would choose the dragonfly:
For when I watch them circling about —
buffeting against one other —
I am drawn into their play and
I long to be part of it.

I know that in my current body
That is not possible.
So, for today
I will watch longingly as they
cling and bounce, to and fro.
