In keeping with our tradition of Bday threads, I thought I'd start this one for my sweet 'spirit-twin'...miss Morning Glow!



Poem: Lessons from a Dragonfly

A dragonfly accepts itís 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 lifeís 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 to those that you love
As the dragonfly watches our actions from above

~Ruth O'Neill

note: A dragonfly can spend up to several years underwater until it is strong enough to surface, shed its skin and evolve into this beautiful creature. Then it flies free among us but only for a very brief period of up to 2 months before it dies.
So I guess your cycle to watch for things coming to fruition has to do with that 2 month timeframe...?

Have a wonderful Year, hunny!

oh, and BTW, that picture looks like it is for sale, cool original art...
