Insects

Odes of the Dragonfly [Oil on Canvas 16×20 Inch] © Omay Lee 2020


蜉蝣之羽、
衣裳楚楚。
心之憂矣、
於我歸處。

The delicate dragonfly’s wings
Flutter like splendid robes that caress
The transience of life, the heaviness of the heart
A common destiny that we all share.

~The Ancient Chinese Book of Poems – The Shijing
