Empty

An empty head

is a good head

 

Am meant to have cooked

tasty morsel

Singing when we wake

We wake everyone when we sing

 

An empty head

is a good head

 

Dwindling down to crooked zero

We sing everyone when we make

Making everyone when we sing

 

An empty head

Is a good head

 

kindling in my belly

am kissed with cement

Making when we’re singing

singing, not waking

 

Am empty-headed

am good-headed

am crook

 

I didn’t realize this dragonfly was alive until he gently started breathing at the poem’s end. We only bought him in after finding it the gutter assuming the upside down, legs in the air, position. I have put him in a sunny spot. Hopefully he’ll revive.
Couldn’t get close enough to focus with my digital camera, so used my i-phone to try capture his winged beauty.
This poem follows the dragonfly form.

Hairy Dragonfly (Brachytron pratense), also known as the Hairy Hawker or Spring Hawker.
