Tightrope Walker

...balanced on a wire. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"So divinely is the world organized that every one of us, in our place and time, is in balance with everything else." ~ Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749-1832)
Summertime dragonfly, little high wire artist; fighting the bounce of a loosely strung clothes line wire in the persistent wind. And yet, he manages with great expertise to hold on. Of course, he has a backup plan in those gossamer wings; if all efforts fail, he can simply fly away. Some days I long for dragonfly balance; or if not balance, at least a pair of wings.
