clippers too must dream of flight
don’t you think
seeing nail ends leap-frog-leaping
their slivered herds

of ten or twenty, like popcorn in hot oil
perhaps wishing they were moons
or bookmarks of night and day
at least… meanwhile

dragon fly clippers 
seek the sky in breathless silver
it’s a domestic orbit, winking at gods 
we all love the morning sun

Written for Miz Quickly’s prompt – Imagine
