Most excellent poem and it matches so well with the photo. I can just see him setting the field on fire. I think we are all feeling the summer heat these days.
You have made the August heat beautiful with your lovely words. :-)
Magical, mystical Magpie!
lovely lovely words and beautiful photo too
T- This is so lovely. Both the photo and the poem! I've never seen a crimson dragonfly before, how interesting!
Wonderful!I gave you one of my weekly awards which you can collect anytime if you like.Have a great day!
Beautiful and so apropos for this steamy, hazy time of year!
Short, succinct, splendid!
Love this line: "aspire to breathe fire", beautiful. The whole poem feels like summer
Dear ~T~: How beautiful the pic of the crimson butterfly which reminds me of an Emily Dickinson's fascination with crimson and scarlet! The poem is luscious and beautiful, an excellently worded poem; "hovering in the steamy hazeaspire to breathe fire"Thank-you for this finery!
A lovely read - summer is hot and the dragonfly appears to be on fire - very nice.
oh, lovely verse...love dragonflies and the imagery from there is very nice. great magpie!
That dragonfly makes me think of Pele the Fire Goddess in Hawaii. And the words make me think of Pele and her volcanos.
Beautiful poem and an amazing photo. Our dragonflies are more of an oil-on-water colour.
What a gorgeous poem! So fitting for this time of year.
Gorgeous poem, it really captures the essence of summer.
very nicely done!
timeless,love this poem!
