Welcome Spring

through the open door
across my room sunlight spills. . . .
Robin Redbreast trills

the scent of blossoms
carried on April’s warm breeze. . . . 
our first hummingbird

among red flowers
where my daughter twirls her skirt . . . . 
a butterfly flits

in late afternoon
laughing in our garden spot. . . . 
we spy a bluebird

In the Harem of the Flower Kisser

at the break of dawn a blue Hummingbird starts his rounds seeking Morning Glory flaunting a red hue - Mexican Sunflower tempts looking hot, hot, hot the Don Juan of birds sucking nectar from Beardtongue. . . drunk on French kisses Goldenrod at noon. . . Zephyr carries a sweet scent beneath a gold sun between Rose bushes the Flower Kisser gets lost in Blue Infinity Sweet Pea and Bee Balm entice with purple petals. . . Bees join the orgy Monarchs swarm in droves when blue Hummingbird alights on Butterfly Bush Evening Primrose waving in the dusk’s last breeze. . . the proper lover the Flower Kisser leaves his harem sated as white Moonflower glows By Andrea Dietrich *The capitalized names for flowers represent some of the most popular flowers visited by hummingbirds.

Butterfly Tears

Dew drenched petals.
Butterfly tears fall softly.
Nectar from the gods.

Hurts so good

Would I lie to you...
love is like a butterfly
singing in the rain.

As the butterfly
Hovers near a peach blossom
Its shadow follows

Crimson seeds of spring
leaf light air, butterfly rain
soft as summer’s swirl.

The Dance

The leaves are dancing,
       Like a thousand butterfly wings.
       The wind is master.
