My Love is the Blue Dragonfly…

“The dragonfly exists because it exists and for no other reason.” 

― Marty Rubin

My love is the cool autumn breeze
whistling through flame coppered leaves
caressing your furrowed brow,
and calming your worried heart

My love is the blue dragonfly
flitting in blush morning air
my love is the brilliant sun shining
on delicate iridescent wings

My love is the grey mockingbird
singing from high in the Mesquite
crooning a soul song of devotion
until our last days are through.

Author’s Note: Happy 23rd wedding anniversary to My Big Viking, the man who has captured my heart and continues to surprise me every day. I will love you today, tomorrow, and through eternity-wherever that may lead.
