Dragonfly Rain

I saw a dragonfly in the rain
stinging and relentless it came down
He was so still I thought he'd drowned

But when the sun began to shine
I saw with joy that he was fine
and had in no way come to harm

I saw a dragonfly fly again
A storm that might so easily oppress
had but made him iridesce

Lord, may the dragonfly's flight be mine!

Dragonfly Rain

-by Kat Cavanaugh LaMantia

Many are saying about me,
"Even with God on his side,
    he won’t be victorious.” 
But you, O Lord, are a shield that surrounds me.
    You are my glory.
    You hold my head high.
I call aloud to the Lord,
    and he answers me from his holy mountain. Selah
I lie down and sleep.
    I wake up again because the Lord continues to support me.
-Psalm 3 (The Voice)
