The Water Dragons

Nature, Pond, Magnificent Dragonflies Male, Flying

I sit in the sunshine and watch the cobalt blue dragons darting above my garden pond.  A gentle tinkling of the pond fountain as it sends shimmering streams of crystal water skyward becomes the soundtrack to which the dragonflies’ dance.  They take no notice of me as they focus upon their late summer tango.

Flitting here and there
Darting above lily-pads
Water-Dragons dance

  1. There are echoes of Basho in your haiku, and I love the flash of cobalt blue, the sound and sight of the fountain, and the idea of dragonflies dancing a tango. Sadly, the dragonflies have all disappeared here.
