CATCHING DRAGONFLIES

CATCHING DRAGONFLIES

catching dragonflies
     in the net
but then let them go

catching them
     in a glass jar
oh suddenly
     u keep them for something to look at

catching all of them
     with the warm heart of urs
and yet ur one of them

yes u are a dragonfly !
u can fly in the joyous sky

     oh take pride
          with the sweetest wings
     gone ahead and fly

but i will catch u

     cos ur a dragonfly

and i'll catch u

     i'll catch u
        in my net
      in my glass jar---
