BUTTERFLY DAZE

BUTTERFLIES ARE MELANCHOLY,

BECAUSE THEY HAVE SO LITTLE TIME TO LIVE,

MOVING WITH GRACE AND SERENITY,

SLOWLY FLUTTERING FRAGILE WINGS,

FLITTING FROM FLOWER TO FLOWER ON A WHIMSICAL FLIGHT PATH,

SO THE WORLD CAN SEE THEIR INFINITE LOVELINESS,

THE TRUTH OF A BUTTERFLY’S BEAUTY IS REVEALED,

STARTLED BY A BLINK, OR A ZEPHYR,

THE KALEIDOSCOPE OF BUTTERFLIES INTERMINGLE, TO FORM A PAINTERS PALETTE,

EXUDING A WARMTH TO ALL HEARTS THAT SEE,

THE BITTERSWEET BUTTERFLY.

  1. One of nature’s greatest gifts Fiona. The butterfly can keep your attention for long time with its beauty. When I see the first one of the year I know Summer is on its way. Enjoyed the poem.
