Dragonfly’s silhouette

against the boundaryless blue

entrances me with mysticism,

and I still myself for a clue.


The secrets of the universe

he holds in all-seeing eyes,

billions of years of mysteries

flicker in wings that span time.


The evanescent moments in his presence

pass through me and leave

a mythological map

of the surreptitious path

to placidity.
