Post Series: The Dragonfly Series: A photograph to inspire poetry: Worth it

Worth it

This is the fourth and last photograph of this dragonfly.  Here is a poem inspired by it:

Dragonfly,
clear wings,
blue,
orange,
yellow,
white,
holding on,
seeing up close,
even the little hairs on the legs,
even the structure of the wings,
glowing in the sunlight,
the eyes looking away,
after all of the searching,
all of the waiting,
all of the trying,
this was worth it.
