Realm of the Dragonfly

Like an army gunship ,
she'd pause and stare at me ,
a master of the bullrush ,
her speed as fleet can be .
Her helmet head enclosure ,
Her thin and narrow tail ,
her wings a veined perfection ,
translucent, fragile pale .
Broken wings are gathered ,
full and still intact ,
within the hands they crumble ,
no wind , no breath , no act . ..

That's a lovely photo for a sunny morning as we head towards September, which is such a lovely time of year. It makes me want to be eight years old again and "play out", I think I'll call for Veronica, Helen, Maureen and Elizabeth and see if they're coming out to play!

I'm coming Irene.....
I remember playing out once when we lived at Holland Moor & was with my friend Jean Gaskell, we weren't that far from home. & suddenly my sister appeared and said 'You are in trouble, Mother's very cross, do you know what time it is ? Its 10 oclock '
It was broad daylight & I hadn't got a watch, how was I supposed to know ?
Perhaps it was when there was still double summer time after the war, does anyone know when that ended?

Anyway Irene count me in !

The foreground makes this photo, and it looks a nice place to live.
