Panfly Dreams
The panfly flitted by hovering above the shimmering pool water
Navigating the updrafts in the sweltering heat
Iridescent markings colored the dreaded fronds of the banana tree
The melodramatic strands of the palm reaching wildly in the tropical breezes
The panfly barely took note, watching the sun's rays dance off of the blue crystalline water refreshing and clear
A lizard's dance surmises the butterfly's fear
The water's depths a seductive lure
Fulfilling the devil's works leaves Odonata secure
Flitting to and fro resting proudly on a swaying branch
Sought after for beauty and confidence
Given many a name, myth, and lore
The panfly flies because he can walk no more.

no that is soo true Star... also leads me to wonder how many of us stop dreaming. so caught up in the daily grind trying to turn a dime that we stop using our imagination... we stop dreaming, flying, and tapping into that side of us that allows us to get away...

I imagined the panfly above the water on a sunny day, just doin' what it gotta do. Then I wonder about us as humans, especially in the last line. How many of us have to fly because our dreams force us to no longer walk? Sorry, just thinking too deep again.
