Black lace and shadows
Stain glass wings, emerald jewels
Onyx eyes piercing
Floating on the breeze
Silhouettes rice paper thin
A song without words
Music barely heard
Whirlpools in the wind, fairies
Make a wish, believe

Neat! The colors are perfect.
You have made dragonflies magical. Bravo!

Lovely, Tara, as gossamer as the wings of your fairy.
Wow! Love that.
What a beauty!!!
WOW! I love the way the sihouette contrasts with the colorful background.
I absolutely love this Haiku. That said, you gave me pause until I realized that you hail from a place where English pronunciation is markedly different than what I was raised to.
I’m going to guess that you say ’emerald jewels’ like this – ’em’rald jew-uls’. Or, possibly, em-er-ald jools. It’s one or the other. *I* say it ’em-er-ald jew-uls’ so *I* give it one too many syllables. See how wrong we are in the North?
Ha! I do pronounce it ‘jools.’ You’d think raised in the south I’d add syllables, not leave them out.
