      Thank you. Those dragonflies can move from points to points so swiftly you can never catch them. When I was a kid, I learned how to catch them though. All you have to do is stick up your forefinger into the air and wait patiently until they come and perch on it and get them by the leg…🙂

    Gorgeous, Ashi🙂
    In Romania, tomorrow is the first day of autumn. According to the calendar.
    I never catch a dragonfly.
    xoxo❤

  3. Nature, more reliable than a calendar ☺

  4. Such a beautiful poem. The middle line so perfectly stretches the first image to the thought in the last line.
