Marred By Ink

On white skin
   the butterfly
      in contrast
pale perfection
   now enhanced
an explosion of colour

shoulder blade
   the resting place
        with vivid wings
    a wish to fly
in colourful abandon

~~~ for nette's contest
         the Crown of My Body- a Whitney~~

    Congrats on your win, Francine! I once considered getting a butterfly tattoo but never did. Maybe I should have! Love and Blessings, Rhonda

    wow, now here is one of yours I sure did not know about. Very beautiful and one of the best I've seen. I would never have taken you for a tattoo type!!! Congrats, Francine.

    Good example of a double Whitney poem. I don't know why this form is not included above.

    Nicely arranged and beautifully expressed! They certainly are 'an explosion of colour.' Well done, Francine!! Best wishes, Keith

    I think of a butterfly being as soft and light as a whisper Francine, their delicacy is beautifully described as a contrast to the resting place in your poem. I wish you well in the contest dear one, love, Elizabeth
