All you can see
is the agile,
I have become:
the pond's airspace.
in my nymph-hood,
I ruled below,
pond's murky depths,
spent years hunting
even small fish.
larger wing buds
each time, but no
hints of future
Until one day,
in early dark,
I climbed a reed,
stopped with my head
learned to breathe air.
I morphed from a
to the wonder
you see today.
a lowly start.
