I thought the dragonflies died in winter

but reading that they migrate gives hope.

Their tiny transmitters tracked by airplane-bound humans

navigating Atlantic seaboard songbird flyways.

Though why they do remains a mystery.

The article that inspired this poem suggests that up to 50 of the world’s 5,200 dragonfly species are thought to migrate.
