, , , , , ,

today you were a dragonfly
darting by fast and soon gone
yesterday you were a hummingbird
stationary in the air
as you drank nectar from a tree
until you flew away faster
than my eyes could follow
tomorrow you will be something else
just as fragile extraordinary and fleet
whom i will greet before you disappear
into the great unknown
