Candles glisten, blue and white

In the windows

and on graves across the land.

Memories of independence:

A declaration, an idea, a nation.

Quiet thankfulness and pride,

a flickering pinprick of light.

.

Itsenäisyyspäivä Suomenmaa.

The iridescent cellophane

of dragonfly wings

would make excellent

windows in an

insect cathedral.

The colony queen

could sip nectar

from the jeweled flagon

of dragonfly body

and make a benediction

to beauty and sacrifice.
