Water Weight

Every morning, dragonflies and damselflies carry the weight of dew on their eyes, faces, thoraxes, abdomens, and legs. Seeking sun, they must dry before flight is light. 

I had forgotten how heavily they bend leaf and stem and how beautifully they look -- like beaded pins. I must rise early and return, and return, and return.
