Impressions of a Beautiful Creature


I do get inspiration from unexpected sources and this is one of those. This just came into my mind, Dragonfly, a poem, a Butterfly Cinquain, though I don’t think there is a Dragonfly Cinquain.

Dragonflies to the order Odonata, infraorder Anisoptera (from Greek ἄνισος anisos, "unequal" and πτερόν pteron, "wing", because the hindwing is broader than the forewing). Which is something that I was unaware of.

I have chosen the song by the Strawbs to accompany this which is the title track to their album.


To See

Unequal Wings

Beautiful Filament

Unearthly Wonderful Creature

That Flies

And Hovers, Then Waiting To Soar

Filigree Wings Flying

Colours That Spin
