Black & White Wednesdays ~ Chasing the Magic



Along the sandy shores of the Cascade mountain lake,
there were pebbles, rocks, bushes, fallen trees, wildflowers and evergreens.
Flitting gaily about
from pebble, to leaf;
 and from twig to bloom
were the ever elegant dragonflies.

I stand,
with my toes in the cool, clear water,
captivated by their translucent wings that caught the sunlight;
mesmerized by their svelte bodies
and
finding laughter behind their bulging eyes.

My imagination soars.
I imagine riding on their backs ~ 
being carried across the water as they dance on the mountain breeze.
Mystical.
Magical.
Wonderful little dragonflies!
