Synopsis of Water Bugs & Dragonflies

By Doris Stickney

Down below the surface of a quiet pond lived a little colony of water bugs. They were contentedly going about their business, and every so often one of the members of the happy colony would climb up the stem of a pond lily and gradually move out of sight. The friends of that water bug would watch and wait for the return of the member of their group, but it never came to be.

"That's funny!" said one water bug to another. "Wasn't she happy here?" asked a second water bug. "Where do you supposed she went?" wondered a third. No one had an answer.

The colony came together and promised one another that the next time somebody left the colony they would come back and tell everyone where they went. Soon, another water bug began to climb up the lily stalk, up through the surface of the water, and landed on a lily pad. Weary from his journey, he slept. Later, he awoke and was astonished at the change to his body. He now had four silver wings and a long tail. He began to use his new wings to fly. Swooping and dipping in great curves, he flew through the air. He had become a dragonfly. Remembering his promise to return and explain everything to the colony, he flew over to meet them and tried to dart into the water below but bounced off of its surface. Now that he was a dragonfly, he could no longer go into the water. He thought for a moment, 'Even if I could go back nobody would recognize me in my new body.' So the dragonfly flew off into the warmth of the wonderful new world of sun and air with the hope of reuniting in the sky someday with all the members of his colony.
