May 15, 2012 – Dragonfly, Dragonfly
Growing up, I used to chase dragonflies and other critters such as crickets, bees and bees with stingers, but dragonfly was always very fascinating. I think it was because I was told that dragonfly tricked children into spending way too much time in the sun. It was probably bad then, but nowadays, in the age of video games, I sure wish that more children spend their time chasing real butterflies than playing angry birds.
It has been a while since I wrote a poem (instead of stealing from some famous poet) so, to remind me of the time long ago, chasing dragonfly. What do you think?

|Dragonfly, dragonfly Flutter here flutter bySix legs and four wings
Like Pied Piper when you fly
only so far and always nearby
children chase you all day
|In the sun, in the shade by the meadow, by the streamflutter here, flutter there
Children follow you everywhere
They chase you in their dream
