With dragonflies still on my mind, I went searching for a poem about the same, but came up instead with this gem from Cathy Song. "Waterwings" captures a fleeting moment in the life of a mother and her young son. The following passage touched my heart. It sums up the kind of moment that I always want a photograph to document, though it rarely does.
I watch the circleshis small body makesfan and ripple,disperse like an echointo the sum of water, light and air.His imprint on the waterhas but a brief lifespan,the flicker of a dragonfly’s delicate wing.
