I just saw a damselfly,
At a busy traffic junction.
An extraordinary sight,
It felt like the world suddenly slowed down
It was there hovering through the auto rickshaw
Where was it going?
Where did it come from?
Was it lost?
I looked around
But no one seemed to notice
Was it there just for me to see
Was this a dream?
Was it telling me to stop?
To take a look around
Breathe in a little of its dreamyness
Did it think I was lost?
I held out my hand
To block its way, hoping it would settle down
Hoping it could put a rest to my enquires
But it moved on without stopping
Is it the dameselfly or am I the one who’s lost?
How could such a small being
Touch a person so much
Is it just me waiting for that touch?
I just saw a damselfly
A extraordinary sight
Something that only I could see
And it felt like being totally free
