First Dragonfly
A shiny cat-clown mask of indigo,
With a tiger-striped suit of black, gold, and  royal purple,
Tiny gilded epaulets on her softest, sheer sable raiment:

She nodded as if to say,
"Thank you for caring for my Summer home",
And remained regally perched,
At dead-center South atop my hedge,

As if to lead her fleet of galleons toward August.

I have very special memories around dragonflies since I was little I've just started to write about......hopefully I'll get to share it with you all soon. This poem is lovely and thank you for inspiration.
