Insectica Prophetica

Yesterday, while on my afternoon walk, I watched two dragonflies mating in mid-air.

The two of them were securely attached together, flitting, soaring, dipping and diving. The couple looked to be thoroughly enjoying their afternoon dalliance -- though I may have been projecting just a bit.

"Wow," I thought, "that's a cool trick."

The two of them circled up then spiraled down and


They were both taken out by the grill of a passing mini-van.

And isn't that just the way it goes?

One moment you're enjoying a bit of blissful ecstasy, the next moment you're eternally bonded to a mini-van.

Oh, yes, there's a song there.
