A few days ago, I noticed this dragonfly out in the playground when I was on duty. My phone stitched a few pictures together, into an animated gif.
In class after that, my students were working on acrostic poems. At my desk, I figured I should knock one out, too. The picture seemed the perfect prompt.
Reward for noticing the easily overlooked
Armoured, emerald carapace
Only stilled, for but a brief moment
Fascinating, enthralling me
Left, after lifting my spirits
You gave me joy.
After typing it out again, “nice” is a bit weak, but I can always go back and edit it later.
