Poem: Dragonfly Wings (NaPoWriMo 10)

Immersed in a slow world
Let me not stay down
Let me crawl up to the surface
And beyond
Into the light
To crack open my old self
To make way for the new
Let my wings sprout from buds of hope
And dry and harden
To carry me up
Let me not forget
I’m a dragonfly
Let me fly

About the poem:

Stories of transformation are the best stories ever. I had the chance to watch this short clip of how dragonflies transform from an underwater larva to a fully functional flying machine. When you see change like this, well, you know that anything’s possible!
