Another Sunday Poem. )

I thought this one up on a walk my sister and I took round the pond. A cool, breezy day, and the colors were beautiful, but there were still some small red dragonflies zipping around, as well as bumblebees after the asters and other fall flowers. One dragonfly seemed to be going along with my sister for a little while; he actually landed on her thumb!

Dragonflies follow you
as though you were at once
shelter and larder;
as though you held
in your cupped hands
the waters of their birth.

Nice. I've only seen dragonflies land on plant stems or tree twigs before. Maybe your sister is very attuned with nature or is some kind of floral goddess in secret. ;)

Yes! I've never seen a dragonfly land on a person before, either. Thanks for reading and commenting.
