Photo-heart Connection, November


{KK happy heart}


I have approached this month's photo-heart connection a little differently
and decided to put my thoughts into a poem.  

 Dragonfly Tears

I am part of an intricate
tapestry of life
and if only you would look
you would see it written on my wings

I am not like another
we are each made to be unique
but you can find beauty in the mystery
you need only listen closely for my sound

I soar above
a connection between earth and water
until all movement ceases
when tangled in your many strings

I am here
why can't you see me
I too was made in the face of our creator
and now the time has come; I'm leaving the battleground

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving . . . I'm hoping that today I can start my
Christmas decorating . . . all those boxes of decorations are screaming  calling  my name. They have been sitting there since before Thanksgiving. 

Love, Kim

Your photo is breathtaking! I love all the little drops. I haven't put up any Christmas decorations yet. It seems like there isn't much time between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. I guess I will have ot leave the decorations up longer to have more time to enjoy them.

Oh Kim, I love both your poem and poetry...absolutely beautiful. That wing takes my breath away...it's flawed, yet it's perfect. Thank you for sharing both your words and your image! Good luck with the Christmas decorating...I'm still trying to finish mine, too. :)

Michelle B stole my word for this but I am going to use it here because there is no other that suits your image. Breathtaking indeed.

An amazing image - the delicacy and fragility of that wing - like stained glass against the background, highlighted by those water droplets. Simply astounding. And your words - incredible poetry.

Your poem along with the beautiful photo is so profound! Dragonflies are one of my favorite subjects. It took me two days, but I finished decorating today. I grumbled the whole time, but now I'm enjoying it. You will too. :)
