Helicopters are mechanical dragonflies

Helicopters are mechanical dragonflies

Beatrice Winkel - Trixilie


Imagine, you are sitting in a park on a really soft meadow, the sun sparkles through the leaves of the tree above you, in front of you is a river with twinkling water, the wind is warm and full of flower scent, you are eating some fresh fruit and reading a touching story... and then you hear a really loud chop-chop-sound around you. You don´t know from where it comes, but it is really loud. You can´t even hear your own thoughts and it becomes louder and louder... chop-chop... chop-chop...


After a few seconds (it felt much longer), I spot a gigantic white helicopter with the name "Luftwaffe" flying above us. It crosses the river and lands on the other side of the river, in the back garden of the "Bundeskanzleramt".


At first, the chop-chop-sound was annoying, but when I saw this gigantic white helicopter I was fascinated. Humans can build and fly such incredible things? ...wow... It looked like a huge white dragonfly. I was so excited. I flew around Bea´s head and said "chop-chop" "chop-chop". Bea laughed and tried to catch me, but I was too fast. Of course I was too fast, I was a gigantic white dragonfly. We played catch-the-white-dragonfly for a long time, until Bea laid down quite exhausted on the picnic blanket. It was great. We laughed and giggled a lot.


I guess you know what´s coming next. After we recovered from playing catch-the-white-dragonfly, Bea took a blank sheet of paper and a pencil and we started to imagine how it would look like when I transformed into a white dragonfly. Here is the result of our imagination - picture by picture:



Isn´t it a great story? I love it :)


Of course you can download the white dragonfly as a Mini Comic.
