Dragonfly in the Window

My friend Mickie (more properly Michelle)
gave me this blue glass dragonfly years ago
when I lived in another house
with my dear husband Andrew.

When we moved here, I hung it up high
in the soft light of the bathroom window
where its glowing beauty evokes 
memories of love and friendship –

A woman who lives in another State now.
We see each other sometimes, but seldom.
And the dead man who said that dragonflies 
would be the sign that he lives, in a different state.

A 'small stones' group on facebook is currently writing to the prompt, 'describe an item in your bathroom'.


  1. I love this Rosemary! Thank you for your friendship and beautiful words. I was In QLD teaching this past week. It was a bit of a whirlwind. I didn't make it to Murbah. But I am planning on coming back next Feb to teach on the GC. I will make a point of coming to a different state to visit my dear friends there once again. Love to you Mickie aka Michelle :-)

  2. Rosemary, I love this. Met you on Poetic Bloomings, and love your site and work.
