Blue Dragonfly—A Love Renga for Valentine’s Day

Here’s a poem for those alone on Valentine’s Day.

A Blue Dragonfly
Flits about the light-filled pond
Looking for its mate

Do you get blue sometimes too
Wandering the world for love

If you’re still enough
You may find yourself being
The one to attract

As sattva gathers the means
So love comes to those who wait

The best preparation to love another is to first love yourself. Nobel Poet Laureate Derek Walcott explains it beautifully in his poem, Love After Love.
