Red Dragon on a Yellow Leaf

A brilliant red dragonfly came along

and made my heart sing a little song.

He landed nearby on a fuzzy leaf of green. . .

the brightest dragon I've ever seen.

He moved his eyes as my camera clicked. . .

a nicer spot we couldn't have picked.

After awhile I just sat and stared

I talked to him, and he really cared.

I reached down finally, and put my camera away.

He then flew off without delay.

"Thank you", I thought, as I got off the ground.

That little dragon had me quite spellbound!

Some time later I had such a surprise . . .

My dragon came back to socialize.

He came and landed on a bright yellow leaf.

I blinked my eyes in disbelief.

I quietly took my camera out again

before he'd take off like a tiny airplane.

He posed so nicely for another minute . . .

the colors just right, and perfectly lit.

I thanked him again as he flew away.

This dragonfly has made my day.
