On a short tether

dragonfly wing

My wings are not of wax nor feathers
I cannot rise toward the heavens
The bonds to earth are too tight
Tethers short and possessive

I reach my contrived apogee
Stretching and straining
Rebelling against convention
Unsatisfied with my grounded state

  4. The delicate lace of a dragonfly’s (or perhaps damsel fly) wings, so intricate and fragile.
