I am a dragonfly
and I live on the breeze,
between the reeds and rushes
and the sun’s soft fingers.

I am a dragonfly
and my wings are like water,
or as sharp as two swords
cutting the air into pieces.

I am a dragonfly
and my eyes are like glass,
as round as the moon
they see all that pass.

I am a dragonfly
and my body’s a spear;
as sharp as an eagle
I hunt for my prey.

I am a dragonfly
and I float like a dancer
over the pond’s still surface,
which reflects, like a mirror,
my miraculous presence.

Do you know how I feel?
