M.I.A.

¤

it was the end of the day,

i walked in from the garage

and

in the corner of my eye ~

I SAW IT!

~

in the office, no less

it was big,

it was huge,

and

it stared with

ALL OF IT’S MIGHT!

~

not certain what to do,

i stood

still

trying to think

as a pounding heart

was drowning my thoughts ~

should i catch & release

or

squish & dispose ~

i don’t know…

i mean

WHAT IF IT BITES?

~

so

~

i ran back to the garage,

grabbed a few towels for defense

and

returned to the vicious imposter,

while i tried to compose

my squeamish, frenzied nerves

and

devise a plan of

ATTACK

~

but

~

before i commenced my evening campaign

of

tossing the towel, scooping up

and

taking outside,

i felt this arachnid

needed

a parting gift

~ a selfie ~

 to document it’s moment of

FAME

~

so

~

i got as close as i could,

set up the shot

and

tried my best not to scare it away

 ~ however ~

it

vaulted to the carpet,

scurried behind the bookcase

and

now

this vicious creature is

M.I.A.

flying lights

never seen in the light of day,

only in the dark of night

always quietly flitting about ~ ~ ~

tiny golden flickers of light

a dragonfly’s wings

~

have you ever looked upon a dragonfly’s wings

and

wondered to yourself ~

why?

~

why

with all of the many colors in the world,

are their wings transparent

to the human eye?

~

can it be nature’s gift to protect –

camouflage that which we see

or

maybe what we see is not to be questioned ~

it is exactly

HOW

it should be?

~

~

while pondering how, what and why

a hypothesis came to mind ~

wings such as these

must serve another purpose

than

simply a way in which to fly ~

~

i believe their transparency is magical

and

not just for the sake of  blending in

but

to MAGNIFY

the ordinary

and

all of the beauty which is surrounding them!

the game of ‘what’flies

¤

º

frenzy of flying insects

enticed by summer’s moisture

unsuspecting halos buzzing overhead

a bountiful bug buffet

definition of a whatfly (according to me):

any flying insect
