Control and Surrender

The Dragonfly’s…flight across water represents an act of going beyond what’s on the surface and looking into the deeper implications and aspects of life. To move in all six directions demonstrates a sense of power and poise – something that comes only with age and maturity. The dragonfly accomplishes its objectives with utmost simplicity, effectiveness, elegance and grace.

In the predawn tangle dreams vibrate light
and sound symphonies by the lake. The flight
of night slow and subtle challenge insight
as fear becomes clear. How it fogs heart sight.

Each worry is an arrow I release
aimed at a higher power til at peace
I stand my ground, my blemishes revealed
and each imperfect step demands I yield.

Inspired by: Blemish, Challenge, Tangle and a dragonfly who poses for me by the shore (featured image) and then two who claim my attention (image below). Photographing dragonflies is an act of cooperation. I aim, exhale and click (with goosebumps) as they fly into center stage.
