NaPoWriMo Day 6


I killed a dragonfly just to see if I could

Never thought that I would, no thought if I should

As it stood a good 5 or 6 metres away

At the brightest moment of the hottest day

Didn’t hesitate

No moment to wait

I picked up a pebble and launched it that way

And still to this day I can see it break

A chord is torn in my heart and it aches

I’ll admit I was impressed 

A challenge was set

But the prize pales less when swapped for regret

A beautiful dragonfly 

Still unsure know why 

My first instinct try to make it die

What could I have gained?

A creature in pain

A target for a shot with terrible aim
