~ The Dead Wasp ~

Dried, withered, desiccated, dead,

Husk of a busy life of flight.

With hollow eyes

And black wings bent back,

There is a dead wasp stuck

In the screen.

Forever trapped between

The inside and outside,

Like me.

There is a dead wasp stuck

In the screen

Of the frame of my heartache.

Caught in the present,

Where “used to be’s” don’t fly,

Anymore.

He’s dead, but he still

Keeps stinging me.

And I have to wonder,

If it was the sun that killed him?

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
