dragons on a summers day

Dragonfly garden 5-18-14

it is still July but the season has changed
and rabbits have had their way with my garden
raping and pillaging as they went
a castle over run
and I am left a distressed damsel
after the dragon has lost interest
and flown away
leaving only singed bones
of caladiums and daisies

such is a fairy tale from a summer afternoon
when the air has softened
and summers heat has turned down a notch
and the only dragons in the garden
fly on gossamer wings
schooling thru the soon to be autumn
air

  1. Gorgeous!

    And those wascally wabbits – ours have yet another batch of babies running amok in the neighborhood. Little furry locusts, the lot of them!

    • Went out to water and found the remains of my poor flowers – oh well – I may get out there in the morning early and pull out the rest – leave it fallow for a season. It was pretty for a month or so – wascally wabbits!
