Swimmingly

Like pearly DNA strings
Eggs fall from flitting flies
Into the icy stream below
The next cycle soon to arise

Strands lace the sunken stones
Nymphs abound, dart and dwell
Nature signaling them to surface
Abandoning their lifeless shells

It's all about this emerging
Floating wet up to the sky
And waiting for forming wings
In an instinctive drive to fly

Where male will meet female
A river in which to thrash
Sometimes mistaking darkened roads
Ending in an unceremonious SMASH

Living a speedy short life
Flying, always a frantic frenzy
Because time is all too swift
Eat, seek, mate and die
