Dragonfly... I Think Tommy Revealed It To Me

Dragonfly... I Think Tommy Revealed It To Me
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

I was standing there looking at glass-covered pictures in frames
When I heard a noise, saw the next stack of pictures over
Begin to fall forward toward the floor

I grabbed the frames before they toppled over
While holding on to the frames I was flipping through
The weight of both stacks had me spread out, uncomfortable

What to do was my question until... I froze at what I saw
On the back of the shelf where the pictures had fallen forward from
I couldn't believe my eyes... the last picture that didn't fall was a

Beautiful dragonfly!  The picture was all I could have wished for
I knew as soon as I could safely maneuver all, so pictures wouldn't fall
I would be getting that dragonfly... I knew I couldn't go home without it!

Now... that dragonfly hangs on my bathroom wall
All is sage, and white... calm, and comforting
It feels like one enters a beautiful meadow when they go through the door

I love this dragonfly picture, it makes me happy
It seems very special, like it's meant to be
I think Tommy revealed it ...to me


  1. I think it is a very good posibility that Tommy revealed that dragonfly picture to you!! He knows you would get it if you saw it. I know he loved you very much! He also loved Skip! I will come to see that picture one day. I will call ahead of time. You know how we are! Love, Ms. Nancy
