Remains of the Day...
A few weeks ago my daughter found a damsel fly outside on the driveway. It was no longer alive but it was perfectly preserved. I looked at it thinking about all the insects in our day that go by unnoticed. They never stand still long enough for us to appreciate all the beautiful details of their living bodies. I know that I could not create such a thing...so perfect in every way.
What an interesting thought to consider, that laid bare for all to see are the remains of a damsel fly, fully preserved for someone to study if they might notice before the wind blew her away.
I thought that if I were to choose...I'd be a bee and not a dragonfly. This is what I might look like if I stood still enough for anyone to see me before the remains of the day carried me away with the wind.
