Darn It

To darn means to mend, and I wonder if that’s what this Darner dragonfly was doing. Waylaid in the middle of the road, neither here nor there, perhaps it was simply mending things for itself; sewing up pieces of the inexplicable so they made sense again…or just for now. To be honest, I thought it was dead until I nudged it gently, asked “Are you OK?” out loud while I considered my own repair needs — what to fix, what to patch, and what to release.
