Having tried often myself to write about dragonflies, I very much like this one which seems to "seize" the "essence" of the dragonfly particularly well.

this is very good - confound that dragonfly!

Love this!!! I love those moments that are so small and so quick that they leave us asking, "Did that really happen?" So much poetry to be found in those moments, though, if we choose to reflect on them. I'm so glad that you do so. :)

Thanks, everybody. I've been too busy (in the ways that only retired people can be) to keep up lately.
