With a Grateful Prayer and a Thankful Heart: Dragonfly

Dragonfly

Guess who found another
bug he wanted me to photograph.
I shouldn't be surprised. John was a biology
major in college. That must be why he is always
dragging me somewhere to see some critter or creature. 


This photo brought to mind a song by one of my favorite artists.
When John and I go on long driving trips, we take the music of Fernando along, stick it into the player, turn it loud and enjoy.
His songs lift my heart to worship mode!
This song is different from his usual style. I am not sure if the song has a deeper meaning or if it is just a fun song.


Dragonfly
by Fernando Ortega

Come a little closer, dragonfly 
Settle down with me a little while 
I'm turning off the phone and enterprise 
I could use your company, all right 

Hey, hey dragonfly 
I'd like to stare into your big bug eyes 
Get a closer look at your fine wings 
Think about some fleeting, pretty things 
Hey, hey, hey dragonfly 

Come a little closer, dragonfly 
Little sapphire slipping through the sky 
Between the skaters and the fishing lines 
My, my, my dragonfly 

Hey, hey dragonfly 
I'd like to stare into your big bug eyes 
Get a closer look at your fine wings 
Think about some fleeting, pretty things 
Hey, hey, hey dragonfly 
Hey, hey, hey dragonfly 

Come a little closer, dragonfly 
I love the quiet air you occupy 
I'm sitting down right here, right now, alone 
To hear the river lapping at the stone 

Hey, hey dragonfly 
I'd like to stare into your big bug eyes 
Get a closer look at your fine wings 
Think about some fleeting, pretty things 
Hey, hey, hey dragonfly 
Hey, hey, hey dragonfly 

Hey, hey, dragonfly 
I'd like to ride with you tonight 
Take in your show, take up your life 
Dragonfly, I really like your style

Wonderful image! Love the dragonfly song. I haven't seen a dragonfly this year. I guess our drought has kept them away. One of my favorite flying critters.

This is gorgeous! I just snapped some butterflies. It wasn't all that easy! Dragonflies are wonderful!

Fabulous shot of the dragonfly. I really like the song. I've never heard it before.

I like the song! I'm thinking it must be an analogy to getting back to nature and communing with God. Something we all need to do! My son hates dragonfly season here which only comes once a year ... they are usually swarming when he has PE on the tabletop at school (that's a roof area where there is a soccer field). He doesn't like bugs of any sort. :/

Have a wonderful weekend. Tammy

Beautiful photo! Its wings look sooo delicate and lacy.

Thanks for sharing that song. I had never heard it before. My niece's nursery was in dragonflies and I had drawn her a dragonfly with her name throughout it.

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comment.
