This summer, dragonflies have been very prevalent.
They fly all around the house, above the flowers, along the edge of the woods.
One spot they seem to like the best
is the very tip of some forged iron hitching posts 
we have placed among the flowers and by the fig tree.

I don't know why they favor that spot,
and though I ordinarily try to unravel such mysteries,
this one I won't.
Sometimes you just need to preserve the wonder of it all.
