I’m fascinated with dragonflies, and I often see them when I wander. A few weeks ago in the woods, I came upon a beautiful blue dragonfly sitting on the path. I quickly realized that one of his wings was injured and he couldn’t fly.
I sat with him as he struggled and became weaker and weaker. When he finally passed, I cried a bit and wished him well. I felt like I lost a friend.
Yesterday while I was tending to the last of my summer flowers, this lovely blue dragonfly appeared. He sat on a leaf and kept me company for a long time.
I like to think that he carried the spirit of the dragonfly who passed, and returned to say hello.
How nice to see an old friend…
