A dragonfly accepts it’s brevity of life
With its gossamer wings feeling the breeze
Full of freedom it watches our joy and our strife
Its wisdom learned flitting from water to air to trees
With wings that shimmer showing purpose and duty
Obedient to all of life’s changes in flight
Modestly it shows us its outer beauty
Always gracious, mindful and full of delight
So whether what life gives you is good, bad, or sad
Show others that inner beauty counts and matters
Make your actions amount to many smiles and be glad
For the dragonfly knows it lives a brief life this way
So I learn from this creature to live wisely each day
And make every minute special with those you love
As the dragonfly watches our actions from above

~Ruth O’Neill

As we head into the Fall season, one of beauty, routines and change, may we keep these words of wisdom in mind. Enjoy the long weekend my friends.

Hugs on gossamer wings, Margie
