Sleeps with Dragonflies

I chanced upon these dragonflies mating amongst the water lilies.

From all indications, dragonflies are not monogamous. Such an acrobatic effort for a transient relationship.

Reminds me of the song “Sleeps with Butterflies” by Tori Amos. Here’s a stanza.

I don’t hold on
To the tail of your kite
I’m not like the girls that you’ve known
But I believe I’m worth coming home to
Kiss away night
This girl only sleeps with butterflies
With butterflies
So go on and fly then boy

I guess it also applies to dragonflies.
