We have seen rainbows dance across
the gossamer wings of dragonflies
and wondered what magic they live by
in their fleetingly short yet beauteous life

And we have wondered how they danced
together so bound and yet so free
to the sound of a thousand separate greens
in unison struck by the gentlest breeze

In the still of evening lakes we’ve watched
the faraway sky gift its golden sheen
and awestruck by the ripples of gold
we’ve watched a million miles dissolve

What use this wonder and magic be
If we behold yet not truly perceive
that miracles unfold when there’s no greed
and the wondrous power of existing as ‘we’!
