Early on the lake
awake with the sun,
lighting the air with dragonflies
darting about in their serious flight
expert aerialists
I fantasize an aircraft as deft,
as crazily capable of hover and zoom
as these iridescent pilots
plucking breakfast out of the air
in clouds of acrobatic showmanship
four wings, how wonderful!
I fly with them briefly
in the early light
on the lake
