Dragonfly


With gossamer and fragile wings
Dragonfly flies restlessly
But lazily I sit here
Cursing the fate
While he, snatching the beauty of dawn
I kill my time on the bed in dreams
He finds happiness even with a grass tip
But I always live in a castle in the air
Oh dragonfly you know
Your life is a brief one
But you live in each second
Dear dragonfly
Here I am living
But as dying at each second

    Seeing the dragon fly the poet sees the mortality of the life and the real life situation of the human being. Whatever may born in this world is destined to die and that is the law of nature. Greatly imagined and have a beautiful idea and observation I find here. (Report) Reply
