Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash

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... (photo by Deepak Amembal Magiceye) He'e been buzzing around, checking out the CSIA flower shops passengers and tarmacs, not to mention , runways.
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.
Then suddenly rises in vertical takeoff mode.
Antennae out, wings raised. with relief, he flies, wondering when they will realise, that these Mangalore type runways with sudden drops at one end are really bad news....
