dance of the dragonflies

Dance of the dragonflies

 It was late afternoon
and mosquitos had been attacking for a few minutes
when dozens of dragonflies
came to the rescue

 They hovered and flew
above a dark green meadow
and among the tall wildflowers that grew there,
eating the mosquitos
they found along the way

 ♫ ♫ ♫

 Thank you, dragonflies

thanks a lot guys

 With their bellies full,
the dragonflies brought their dance to an end
and then headed off
towards the rising moon

Rhythm web

 Several drummers
had been playing a compelling rhythm
for quite some time
when two girls wandered into their web

 ♫ ♫ ♫

 Trapped in the rhythm,
the girls began to sway,
and before long one of them began to dance
and the other to sing
while the drummers continued to weave
their web of notes and waves

 ♫ ♫ ♫

 After a while
the drummers stilled the rhythm,
and everyone then enjoyed
a few minutes of silence


We were walking nearby
and heard you drumming

 This rhythm always manages
to entrance, bewitch and seduce
People hear it
and then cannot resist
the call to sing
or dance

 It’s a kind of magnet
that draws one closer to home
and sets one free
from thoughts
for a while

 Would you like to join us?



 The two girls then took
the offered drums
and played with the drummers
while butterflies danced in the air
and birds sang their songs
