With Dragonflies

With Dragonflies
by Aurelio Rico Lopez III

With Dragonflies

Emerald cocoons,
Nursed by the sun's radiance
And the spring breeze,
Nestle in the crowns
Of majestic oaks like
Tiny jewels hidden in
Forest foliage.
And on a fateful morning,
When the boughs
Are heavy with
Magic and morning dew,
Occupants of these
Silken apartelles
Will adorn the skies.

What inspires you to write and keep writing?

I write because I HAVE to. I have no say on the matter. Writing is in my blood.
