Night of the Dragonflies

While walking the dogs last night in our neighbor’s
pasture we witnessed a sight we had not seen before.

We don’t know if it was because of the torrents
of rain we’ve been getting, or just that we
don’t normally walk at dusk.

In the sky were hundreds and hundreds of
dragonflies, black and white dragonflies,
swarming around our heads, accompanied
by the swallows, catching mosquitos it must
have been.

It was if tiny winged creatures had taken
over the sky and in an orchestrated
ballet of flight. We hope to see it again.

Nature hands you tiny miracles when
you least expect them.
