Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Autumn Retreat 2017 “departure”

#haiku 

n.b. 

it was last summer that I accidentally saw this dead dragonfly on a hibiscus plant beside the kitchen garden . it was well hidden beside the money plant (in other parts of the world it is known by different names , devil’s ivy , taro ivy etc.) . 

I was deeply moved by the way it stuck to the hibiscus . It’s only in poetry or haiku that I hear about dragonfly shell , cicada shell etc . but that night I saw it with my own eyes . I had to capture this moment . So here it is . 

no editing of any form was done in this photo .
