Dragonfly: light standard bearer
Heraldic image of the uncertain
Rising to him, the prisoner's prayer,
Watching from behind an iron curtain

Even poor children easily play
With those wings of watered silk
And when the world has had it's day
Millenia remain to his ilk

Dragonfly: fulcrum caught
Between mystical and mundane
Two distinct realms of thought
A water borne creature of rain.
