The World Is Filled With Dragonflies

The world is filled with dragonflies
in the fall
filling, cascading, bathing the air
this is mating
as they fly into each other
and touch and join
hover in a
moment

This is the season
the color of the leaves
and in the bright sun and cool air
the question burns me.

When is our season?
