I saw you last night. I saw your rainbow wings reflecting the moonlight.
You little tart.
Last week you were a butterfly. And now a dragonfly! You are a tart, a shape changer and a show off.
But I will give you this: Last night you were a perfect dragonfly. Just like you, a dragonfly has those big ol' eyes but can't see very well either. No offense. I lose my breath when you push up your glasses like you do.
Did you know a dragonfly is a creature of the wind and symbolizes change? In fact, a dragonfly lives as a youngster for a few years before molting into an adult. After molting, it only has a few weeks left to live. Thus, despite living as a youngster for the vast majority of its life, the dragonfly is a strong symbol of maturity.
So be proud to be a late bloomer in this world.
You know, in Japan, the dragonfly represents strength and joy.
Native Americans believe dragonflies are the souls of the dead.
To some, the dragonfly represents good luck and harmony.
To others, the dragonfly represents prosperity.
To most, the dragonfly symbolizes hope, renewal and love.
No, I'm not showing off what I just learned online...Well, maybe a little. But I'm also making an important point, and that is: The dragonfly is a lot of things. Besides a creature of the wind, a dragonfly is also a creature of the water, which symbolizes our subconscious, our deepest dreams.
Pin your wings back, all of them. I want to see you as you really are. That's my deepest dream. That's all I'm trying to say.
