Dragonflies represent metamorphosis and adaptability. Their translucent and beautifully iridescent wings they show a lightness of being. Dragonflies are also powerful and act as a reminder of the strength and courage we must exhibit to meet any situation. In Japan, dragonflies represent happiness and strength. A dragonflies' short life does not allow it sit and ponder. Instead it causes it to live fully in the moment, just like we should.
Reminder measures 1.5"h x .875"w
Today I saw the dragon-fly
Come from the wells where he did lie.
An inner impulse rent the veil
Of his old husk: from head to tail
Came out clear plates of sapphire mail.
He dried his wings: like gauze they grew;
Thro’ crofts and pastures wet with dew
A living flash of light he flew.
- The Dragon-fly by Alfred Lord Tennyson
