Once, in the cool blue middle of a lake
up to my neck in that most precious element of all,
I found a pale-grey, curled-upwards pigeon feather
floating on the tension of the water,
at the very instant when a dragonfly,
like a blue-green iridescent bobby pin,
hovered over it, then lit, and rested,
I mention this in the same way
that I fold the corner of a page
in certain library books,
so that the next reader will know
where to look for the good parts.
I love folding "the corner of a page" both literally and figuratively (for my own benefit and for others). And am fortunate to have many people in my life who do the same for me. It reminds me to stay close to the richness of the colors of life....cool blue, pale-grey, blue-green iridescent....
