 Sterling & turquoise


Inspired by a visitor at Five Maples last weekend, it startled me with it's bravery.  
Circling around us out in the fields..and finally coming to a rest on my little finger, warming itself in the warm 
October sunshine.

Japanese folklore tells of the dragonfly as the ambassador between 
our world and and the afterworld, 
admired and respected for it's agility 
and seeming love of life 
despite such a tragically brief lifespan.  

The dragonfly represent change, adaptation and good luck.


And when the roses are half buds half flowers
And loveliest the king of flies has come
It was a fleeting visit, all too brief
In three short minutes, he had been and gone.

He rested there upon an apple leaf
A gorgeous opal crown set on his head
Although the garden is a lovely place
Was it worthy of so fine a guest.
