Dragonfly wisdom

Another wonderful dragonfly clicked by blogger friend Deepak Amembal Magiceye.  
Possibly in Mahim  Nature Park in Mumbai. Or possibly  somewhere on the road trip that he is on, at the moment. 

Mumbai was currently beset with runway problems, when , possibly due to excessive monsoon rains and washed away soil, a Turkish airliner got stuck in the slush off the actual runway, blocking and delaying hundreds of flights.

The sudden green drop off brings back some sad memories of a similar runway in the South,  which contributed to a very bad accident.

I wonder what goes through the dragonfly's mind...

He'e been
buzzing around,
checking out
the CSIA flower shops
passengers and
not to mention ,

His Turkish cousin
did complain
about things
being wet
as in tears,
and slippery
as in Ministries

Gingerly ,
golden lights
blinking on the wing
he accelerates,
as he taxies
for take off.

suddenly rises
in vertical takeoff mode.

Antennae out,
wings raised.
with relief,
he flies,
when they will realise,
these Mangalore type runways
with sudden drops
at one end
are really bad news....
