All Over


Dragonflies
I see them all over my yard.
In the front
In the back
Small ones
Big blue ones
I was in the back yard
wondering where they go when it gets cold
which it seems to be doing
weather wise that is
Not tonight though
seventy three in the hallways
with most windows open
Still there is the coolness
Calling to us
The woods that surround my yard
seem to be getting ready
For the change that is coming
Do the dragonflies fly away ?
Must look this one up.

Just my thoughts while I sit with my
silly snowshoe Siamese, Jasmine Marie.

Dragonflies have a very special meaning for me..a happy dance they perform diving in and about.I have never given any thought to where they go when the snow flys..I wonder why that is.I am always worried about the butterflies and hummers but have never given the dragonfly the same thought..I shall now that I have read your wonderful poem!
My Babie is not one to stay still for photos..so Paisley get all the publicity.Hope all is well at

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
