Dragonfly and The Child Inside


Jumping into my kidney
Shaped swimming Pool,
In my girlish pink suit,
I let free the child inside,
In my fifties I was happy
With bubbles and waves
I created with my playful
Feet and kittenish hand,
Amidst my trying hard
To forget pain of betrayal
Of closest relative and friend,
A red dragonfly passed by,
And thought I,
of The Creative Creator,
Of His countless
Blessings and gifts,
One of which is appreciating
Beauty in all things around
Small and grand;
Stars, oceans, singing
Birds, roses and butterflies.

I began to pray,
Tears filled my eye,
All of a sudden,
As if the dragonfly
Understood what said I,
As if she felt the awe
She fetched many red dragonflies,
And after a while other dragonflies
With different colours and sizes
Were flying up and down,
Some plunged in a fearless manner
Into the warm water,
Some drowned while trying,
They came to share my prayers,
To be part of Nature's symphony
That praises Almighty,
What a symphony!
I felt the harmony between all
Creatures except Man,
Flowers insects, singing
Birds, and plants,
The symphony and their jocund
Company erased my
Many disappointments,
Sadness and pain.

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
