Damselflies and Funky Lizards...two sides of my personality.

I have been visited by these alien looking creatures all week, 
perhaps due to the drop in temperature here in the desert, 
which has been so pleasant. 
Dragonflies have lived on earth for more the 180 million years, 
proving their ability to survive and adapt.  
They are creatures of two realms, water and air. 
I share the love of both, the need for sun and warmth and the freedom of flight. 
 I have always wished and dreamed of flying, 
but silently on delicate wings 
able to stop and hover and soak up the beauty all around me. 
So today 
I closed my eyes and imagined riding a damselfly 
skimming over clear sparkling water, 
hovering over the garden wall to choose the most beautiful flower to rest upon. 
Her iridescent wings refracted the sunlight 
creating a dazzling display of light and color all around me.  
The moment was magic 
but sadly illusive 
as are the last lingering days of summer. 
One tear shed for the end of summer's glory
One sigh as the heat wanes,
One smile,
 for the colors of autumn foretell
the promise of winter slumber
like a bedtime story.
