Dragonfly

Where are you going Dragonfly?
I heard a buzz as you flew by
You flew so fast away from me
There was someplace you had to be
The flight plan was a straight line
I hope that you made it on time
Translucent wings shone in the sun,
In your shadow they looked like one.
In a flash you were gone
My lunchtime reverie was done.
Then a butterfly floated by
The orange on his wing caught my eye
He flits from here to there
As he drifts away into the air.
