Instant Poetry--dew on a damselfly

dew on a damselfly. 

Daylight turns a thousand points
to a single drop.
Clinging to the blue, a tribute
to the complex, to the simple
To the magnificence of nature
of God, of life itself
Each a memory of the trip
from high above, clouds
from far below, ocean
Meeting just this once,
Dancing with the light, the life
Just this once.
Never again to meet
Never again to touch
The wonder of this moment
Captured only in the
dew on a damselfly.
