Ehecatl (wind serpent)
There it was in the morning,
wings buzzing humming invisibly moving;
Alighting on a little silver cup tracing grandmothers name.
Dragonfly: translucent, iridescent and Mesmerizing.
Hovering about the reading chair ancient wind serpent came and stayed.
Vibrating initiations for a path to midlife renewal.
Too large to vacuum
a dusty ball displaying only one folded flapping wing.
A wing only….
How had this esteemed visitor disappeared?
Had some “other” devoured its parts leaving only a wing?
Only one wing…..
Had waning women’s path
Set awry from undisclosed fear
brought succulent esculent dragonfly
to disclose their most secretive passion?
A Certain Crunch heard remembered or an
Imagined taste and flavor?
With Savory Balanced Bitterness and Salty Sweetness:
Courage settling Into a center
Digesting thus begins: forecasting calibration for body electric
as gestation for life begun.
