This lovely lady rested beside me for a moment or two.
Dragonflies carry with them a weight of myth and folklore.
In Feng Shui, dragonflies mean change, new beginnings and bring all kinds of nice things.
Some people think a visit from a dragonfly is a visit from someone from heaven.
Another take suggests that they represent self-awareness and living in the moment. This might come from the fact that dragonflies spend most of their lives as nymphs, living as adults for only usually a few months.
All of this adds to the beautiful mystic of the dragonfly. These elegant and versatile fliers are equally at home in the air, on land and on the water. And they eat mosquitoes!! Or, so I’m told. A positive characteristic in any visitor.
One thing I know for sure, when this particular dragonfly alighted beside me, the world stood still for a few breaths as I marvelled in this small gift.
