Mam’s Best Brooch

I found Mam’s dragonfly brooch today and it brought back to mind this poem – and lots of memories.


Dragonfly – your topaz dazzles
like a yellow winged darter
hovering over reminiscence.
Camouflaged in amethyst
you settle on her
plum jacket, wings recalling fairies
from her bed-time tales; they frolic
amongst lavender and marigolds,
dancing in my dreams.
