I'm still alive and I don't know why?
My heart survived falling from the butterfly sky

Caught by the hands of destiny
With visions only I can see!

My love I heard your call
Wings of a butterfly broke my fall

Love motion is in the air, a love no one can compare
Indulging a look-a-stare- that we both share

Reminiscing our love made out of stolen hope
Awe~:*! To  them butterfly kisses that felt so real

Flowing like Amazing Grace, 
A shining light upon my face.

I traveled fast and far, longing to be in your arms
I desire, the warm sensation of your charms

Your safe love will help me carry on,
With the strength and bond~the love you set upon

Nothing is better than a sensual butterfly kiss
Beyond the sensation of heaven's pure bliss

Fluttering in the clouds aiming for the moon
A dream of reality, out of my cocoon I bloom!

Valued by the art of true beauty and its rarity
True love flapping in the midst of clarity

I entwine that I am yours and you are mine
Bonded together till the end of time

With the vision, my heart is no longer blind
Two broken hearts at last combined

I glide below to touch your lip.
Our lashes touch from tip to tip.

Caressing each other as our wings expand
Two hearts- kisses collide and land

Holding your hand reaching to the rainbow sky.
Kisses:*kisses:* like the butterfly!

Dedicated to *My Babe*

The Late Blooming Iris

Lately I have paused, pondering death
But I'm not fit for it's journey yet.

It's not that I loathe meeting death's kind
It will be, for me, an experience of a lifetime.

I've had one stupendous, lovely, awesome gift
A second chance at life I could not resist.

So tell me this... who's thinking of dying?
I am the rainbow. Rain falls, next, I'm smiling.

Lately I have paused, pondering death
But it's out of my hands, my stem's length and breath.

All I have been, isn't all that I am
I've taken a stand to let The Source guide my hands.

I can claim to be a calico, carved by nine lives
Again, and again, I rise with clearer eyes.

I'd assume any form my Maker shapes me to use
Would I be excused, if in your haven I refuse?

I am a flower, even in winter
Even in winter, I am a flower.

Butterflies of Saturn

Here are butterflies that skip 
Dull steps of metamorphosis
No isolation in coocoons
No gorging grubs like fat balloons
 Pure genesis on snow kissed  flowers
Comes with no imperiled hours
Their slow, eternal life begun
Beneath a pink pearlescent sun
Reflecting tints from rainbows born
With pastel lights of endless dawn 
Transcend through fabled time and myth
To form the rings of Saturn's mist.

My Butterfly

My Butterfly

Furry little caterpillar in
your coat of black and brown

It's so very hard to tell
if you are up or down

From your lofty branch
you fall onto a leaf below

Only to decide again 
that's not the way to go

you are so steadfast 
in your flight

I have such sympathy 
for your plight

As you inch about to and fro
I wonder why I love you so

Then as the miracle
of life's performed

With golden wings 
you are transformed

Your former self left stiffly dried,
no more a furry coat inside

Now as you glide on currents high
I need not wonder ,why I sigh...

Tis you I love, my Butterfly!

''Flying Gems''

I am standing in my garden amongst the beautiful flowers, when a kaleidoscope of butterflies comes silently drifting. Past my lovely primrose rockery, so bright and brilliant, they find a purple cornflower by the fence just blooming. All the colorful butterflies stop to kiss painted daisy, then glide to the red bleeding hearts that are drooping. They settle for a rest on the white campanula trumpets, and give a gentle touch to the columbine just growing. The blue larkspur called them over it seems to me, so those tiny gems prance on over with joyful dancing. Between yarrow, sage and yellow tick seed in bloom, they spot purple echinacea and just came a flying. The kaleidoscope of whirling wings is perfectly still, then the parade of butterflies leave on wings fluttering. But first- stop for a quick sip from my water fountain, and then gone the colorful kaleidoscope of gems gliding. _________________________ May 8, 2016 Couplet For the contest, A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies, sponsor, Julia Ward Third Place

Who am I?
Am I defined by what is near in sight?
Am I defined by what I have done,
Or am I defined by what I could become?

Perhaps I'm of no use.
To him, or her, or I, nor you.
Or perhaps I'm too misunderstood to be defined,
And it is something like understanding that comes in time.

And if to the world I'm never shown,
Yet in my own light I've grown and grown,
And so I can know no happiness but my own--
The reason for my smile, to you, will forever be unknown.

I do not pray for the world to know my name.
For it and verse; the letters are the same.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads,
I pray his pain my words to keep. 

Should his eyes rain on my page,
Better tears than storms of rage.
And if a man should find his sorrow in what he reads.
I pray his pain my words to keep.

And if to the world you're never shown,
Yet in your own light you've grown and grown,
And so you know no happiness but your own.
Let the reason for your smile, to you, only be known.

Leopard to Hunter


Hello please do come right in
Did you say that you fancied my skin?

My coat of fur is not for your use 
Cats like me have suffered enough abuse

If the creator had felt you required my skin 
I'd be sitting where you are, and you'd invite ME in!

Scarey Poem

let's start with a line and see where it leads
People like blood so I will make mine bleed

a zombie a chainsaw perhaps some bats
For good measure I'll throw in some black cats

I'm running out of ideas I think
Something is bad, it's a terrible stink

Have you heard the one, about the sparrow
He let loose excrement, on the Pharaoh

Oh what a horror, the bird felt so bad
The Pharoah in anger, yelled out egad

Archers at the ready, shot the bird down
Pharoah bit of wings, wore them on his gown

He fed the birdie to his own black cat
The cat so happy it meowed where it sat

Mummys and bats they make me want to scream
Most of the horrors come from my own dreams

Dancing disjointed, what do I have to loss
Bones I crunched, I removed with dental floss

Let's finish with a flurry, a mad dash
A horrible fungus, a scabby rash

It is time to wake up and be truthful to ourselves.
We are just a dream lacking butterfly wings.

It times to strive for more.
The floor has no ceiling.

Our dynasty will form.
Our destiny is ours.

The monarch must rule.
We are the colors that soar.

We are North America.
We are the people that were discovered.

This is our time to thrive.
We have survive through atrocities.

We reside in our given places.
We are the faces of tribes.

Those that hate us are not within this world.
We are of a greater determination and of God.

The spirits of our people are our sacred grounds.
To thread across, is uncouth and unsound.

We will stand up for our rights.
We will fight for our way of life.

We are the voices of Chiefs.
We are the Tribes.

A Morning View

A day comes with a
morning dew,
For the words, less
to cope all few,
The breezy wave and
tweeting eyes,
Of rising sun, view
the Himalaya highs,
The trancing
eclipses and
faltering trees,
Held me there,
caught me freeze,
And the prevailing
dusky downy haze,
To falling cascade
of ivory rays,
Where I hied to let
it chase,
This beautiful
bounty widespread
I look & look, with
a glance and gaze,
With winking eyes
with hot cap,
I observed their
silent nap,
And whence the sun
rise and set,
Sparrow and humming
beak to get,
Food to survive and
maintain life,
And live on sharp
edgy curvy stemy
Above the grove and
in dense forest,
Where harmonious
peace dwells in the
Where leaves
levitate and birds
And oscillate with
desire, solidarity
in love,
A bird in this
hustle bustle,
Jingle jangle and
trilling rustle,
Are not base
generations, it’s
true so,
They rise through
reincarnation, and
Up to our believe
and reckon,
They are alive and
I ask my conscience
where to hike,
Stood here and there
or by riding bike,
To feel the scent of
this rainy December,
Over my worries and
lethargy to
His never-ending
silence to end
Made one statue,
stunned one bright,
And I put my towel
to have a shower,
This congeal water
pierces me by power,
Oh ablution is
enough for adequacy,
Count on, fend off
with sufficiency,
And when I walk on
flossy meadow,
The emerald tint
fell a shadow,
Upon my eyes to
sensory nerves,
Where the earth,
laid with several
The invigoration of
spirit rises up
On rambling off and
on, this grassy
Over this belt with
buoying ways,
No alternate of this
land, O nays,
Where I felt about
flying upon,
Falling, right left,
up and down,
Then I move here and
there, up-to sun
To meet buoyantly
this sunny light,
The sun with
magnetic warm and
This morning with
candelabra wile,
Cause a man to wake
and woke,
Sing a flute while
sitting under an
How this mean, a
life less of
Won’t you thrill
this grudgingly by
A world, an
embarrassment of
And a life with
plenty of beach’s.

"I dreamt, I was a butterfly or was I, a butterfly dreaming . . ."

~out drifting on a wind- swept night, she hears air of  clouds speak
of rafting whispers from the light, to let a blue angel seek    * *
a pathway through the marsh shade, where satins of evening flow
past crushed green and frosted jade, a world enrapturing glow,
a world not quite in between, where neither she nor he has sailed
an old psalm , a holy scene, a place where every tear is nailed,
and far out past the veil-stained trail, there is a dream waiting for her
like an enchanting necklace on sail, a reverie drifting on sea so fair~

she smells bird song’s grace, captivating in it’s solitude   *
*another time another place, where even dreams gently intrude,
a place where silence breathes a voice,entrancing the heart of a man
another hope, another choice, another contemplative charm,      *     *
along a road a tree sways, chanting to each passing ear
the words she touches but cannot see, the words erasing the fear,
and though there’s still a strain, that somehow just won’t go away   *
fascinating thoughts affirm that faith grows stronger by the day~ ~

~they sit there talking side by side, so many tunes in their rhyme
no place for anything to hide, transparent is the hood of time,
his voice cuddling traces of before, a sacred place of long ago      *
another sanctum, another key, a space that they still have to know,
and as they hum of when and where, a voice calls softly from behind
like delightful  music of the breeze, that feels so heavenly designed,
* then suddenly the night drips gold, as the necklace floats into sea
and just before he leaves, he tells that all their dreams would come to be. ~ ~

For Spring to Come

For Spring to Come
For spring to come we can hardly wait;                           		                     In every part of it want to participate; 					       Hear birds sing as flowers start to grow                                                        Watch fine fields while they will flow.

Leaves turned green which were brown; 				          And spring showers started falling down, 				         With water that eventually by now brings                                                        Born butterflies soon with beautiful wings.

Sun will start shining more each day
Pretty soon clouds are passing away;                                                               Sky becomes Carolina blue and clear, 					         After all of gray color did disappear.

A while now, nearby, spring has been,				                While we always wanted to see it again; 				          So silently spring surely started to fade;				 Summer was here as we sat in the shade.

The Butterfly Jinn

One jinn butterfly flew on his wings three wishes lay.
One wish was for true beauty to grace forms caste of clay.

For though all things are beautiful, their mind doeth say neigh
And discord comes when envy vies and jealousy doest play.

And once man’s reached reality as to truth he’s reborn
The butterfly in me would wish true kindness would form.

Kindness, so that none would hurt another and fear be allayed,
kindness for each and every day, so anger and hatred are kept at bay.

The third and final wish my jinn butterfly would carry
Would be forgiveness when in weakness good men do tarry.

Each of us like the butterfly feel trapped ‘tween the glass
Praying to fly free before our glory days have passed.

**In Arabic, a genie (also jinn, jinni, djinni, from Arabic jinni) is a supernatural creature which occupies a parallel world to that of mankind

Butterfly Beginnings

The butterfly flutters by begin, begin
as in true in nature love springs.

Ageless amazing nerves sing,
bowed tension on cello string.

Eyes which will not let go, 
Father of Fire was bound, just so.

Bound was man by the gift of flame
for love brings man both joy and pain.

Butterflies flutter within the begin
ageless amazing nerves sing,

Bowed tension on cello string
a trail of kisses flowing, sting.

Dry tinder burning in Earth bound glory
love to Eye tells a comet’s trailing story.

Love begins on butterflies wings
with the bowed tension of a cello's string.

Butterfly Wing Man

Butterfly Wing Man

OH …. would I……could I……should I…..????
Write about the butterfly…….and why?

Awakens from his past ---full fledged
while beneath I stand ---still pledged

To hold my ground – on sacred soil
watch his translucent wings uncoil

 A gentle breeze his birth ….. updraft 
first touch of joy ‘neath fragile craft

Duty bound in ancestry
I envy him his being free

Watch him praise the rising sun
bathe in the heat that I must shun

Nestled in his petaled bed
I see him slowly dip his head

Promises to nature kept
tears for those who never wept

Wings that change the course of time
Wings – that sadly – are not mine.

Home is where the butterfly goes;
Somewhere no one may ever know.

Home is where the sparrow flies;
A nest in softest shadows hides.

Home is where an old man can die
In peace.

Just A Simple Wallflower

Just A Simple Wallflower

I'm just a simple wallflower hanging on a long thin limb
Can you see me hanging, now you just can call me singing not in grim?

I'm just a simple wallflower hanging on a long thin limb
Now I may be singing a happy song for I may be real slim,

I'm just a simple wallflower hanging on a long thin limb
Can you see my happy smiling eyes, they may be singing words of time,

I'm just a simple wallflower hanging on a long thin limb
Can you see my beautiful wings, sitting to the beauty of wall clinging mighty trim,

Now I'm telling you! I'm just a simple wallflower hanging on a long thin limb.

Forty Times Forty

For you, no evanescent love, it'll bud and bloom
Favored plethora by light of many moons

Oh yes, I'll revel in rhapsodic voice of yours
Old cupid will be thrilled; felicity seals this love of ours

With dulcet memories we colored on pages of time
In early light of those, our yesteryear, for love wasn't blind  

Radiant rainbow following rain will blush and steer
Recall you've caused my sapphire eyes to twinkle like stars

Tell it in song; arm in arm with Iris, you'll browse idyllic grounds
Together by Eden clear waters, a chrysalis becomes butterfly by your wand

Yes, we'll pledge there, never ever to part
You'll be my talisman, aligned forty times forty years with my heart.

The Black Cat and The Butterfly

The little black cat with eyes of olive green,
Her fur like a shadow with a sunshine sheen,

A flutter of his orange wings carries that monarch in the breeze,
As he mimics an autumn leaf floating around with great ease,

He feels right at home in a cloudless sky of baby blue,
The endless joys the two share together can never subdue,

Gladly that butterfly comes every afternoon just to say hello,
As she becomes lost amongst the lavender and daffodil yellow,

Her pink nose gently sniffing the bud of the white rose,
As our curiosity and need to explore in nature only grows,

Blooms are nevermore gorgeous as in the warm month of May,
All the troubles in our worlds are now distant memories today,

We have have been friends forever, and I'm really not sure why,
I'm just happy to have the sunshine and that little butterfly,

All of a sudden the orange monarch lands down on her paw,
And her bright green eyes open and widen with pure awe,

The butterfly teases her, he knows how to enchant,
She jumps up and tries to fly like him, but she can't,

As the monarch chases the sunset with the fading day,
The little black cat cries and wishes for him to stay.

For my friend Gregory Curry, aka Nature Boy... Your poetry and your presence are missed here already... Hope you come back soon :)

Butterfly - repost

Sweet butterfly with wings of gauze Give this tired heart a moment's pause Unburdened by the human cloak Freedom's spirit your flights invoke Dreaming times in cloudy spheres Raining droplets made of tears With not a whisper you fly away I would not bid you here to stay Beside your path goes just a bit of me For one moment my soul flies free

The Grove

I guess maybe both of us may have changed to some degree;
But try though I may I see it in you more than I see it in me.
I guess I wasn’t so nice to you as far as that boy girl thing went;
But I know there had to have been a few memorable moments spent.
Ah but that train I ride it keeps rolling down the track;
And I guess there’s just no coming back
So while I’m stopped here waiting for the right time;
It’s okay to look around but if you don’t have a ticket it’s still my dime.
So maybe next time baby girl another life another place;
Who knows what mysteries might appear before you right there in your face.

Spring Is A very Beautiful Season - The Rhyming Couplet style

 o~Spring Is A Very Beautiful Season~o
(Rhyming Couplet)

Springs a beautiful time of the year
We can hear birds and enjoy flowers near

During this time the trees are born again
Spring showers feeds the plants and wheat grain

Skies are true blue and night stars are clear
In the mountains we see bears and the deer

More folks take a walk to the park and pier
Lovely time when tulips roses and orchids appear

Folks have more fun in the parks and the street
Sights sounds and smells around us are so sweet

Colorful butterflies flutter atop flowerbed
Sun shines more and summers a step ahead.

A Poetry Talk-A-Along

Poems we prepare should become a song
Then try to have a Poetry Talk-A-Along
When each one reads my poem will agree
That they should read it along with me.

At same time will read it all together
And outside no matter what kind of weather
Evening if raining, stormy or skies are blue
You can take this copy home with you.

Read poems after temptation off did fight,
Maybe in morning, noon or even at night;
Most of my poems are all rather relaxing
So email to others or you may try faxing.

Some poems have been about history
Or with might use to solve a mystery
Or I have heard and even better yet
Time I fell in love when we first met.

Poetry these days is drawing much attention;
People like them and there is no dissension;
My profound poems can promote tranquility;
Why even you too may have a hidden ability.

The butterfly's Lovers

A little butterfly came out of its cocoon
Looking at it, the whole world did swoon

Yet, the little butterfly was in unease
Why did the world stare at it, as if it had some disease

It sought to look at itself in a mirror, but could not
It sought to look at itself in a river water, but could not

At last, it met another butterfly, who would only look at it
And said, hey, to the world, you are a good treat

See you how you glisten, see you how you glitter
I am sure, the whole world has become your lover

The little butterfly thought its new friend was a liar
But, then, it listened to the wind and heard talking to it, the meadow flower

Do you not know, said the flower in all honesty
Do you not know, that a butterfly sees not its beauty!

Butterfly Kisses contest

Spring woke the world out of its dismal sleep,
Musical sounds of life rejoiced, no longer compelled to weep,

Cocoons cracked fervently,
While light permitted the earth to see,

The splendor of such a sweet creation,
Arising with vigor and anticipation,

Marvelous pigments danced in the warm wind,
Deep in the meadows is where their lives did begin,

Like little flags in midair waving in victory,
It was time for perfection to finally be free,

Butterfly kisses consumed the atmosphere,
Gracefully loving all that came near,

patches of wings swirling in vibrant trails,
lavender violets just casually sailed,

Souring so brightly without a care,
Delicate and delightful some extremely rare,

While landing for a moment in a garden of flowers,
They drank of sweet nectar, renewing all power,

Rejuvenated, now ready to flee,
Onward they swayed towards their destiny.

The Butterfly

Now listen very closely. It's almost like an art,
And answer me truthfully. Did you ever hear a butterfly fart?

I mean it has to happen, they eat fruit and nuts all day,
And when it happens to butterflys, does it help them fly away?

Is it like a little gas engine, that makes a putt, putt, putt?,
And does it stop abruptly, when he closes his butthole shut?.

Now I know that these are'nt questions you'd hear from a sane mans lips.
Does the butterfly eat extra, when he's planning longer trips?

Now when you're out enjoying a beautiful sunny day.
When you see a butterfly flying by, you won't see it in quite the same way.

A Butterfly's Visit

My butterfly garden of splendid views Bestows trails of wings in vibrant hues Blooming flowers tempt with nectar sweet As butterflies flutter, grand colors a treat Their grace lifts my soul in the dawn's early hour While I watch them dance from flower to flower In morning glory, a monarch kisses then flies This butterfly gift, a charming surprise She gently touches my hand as I freeze Her delicate wings then wave on the breeze A moment in time, beauty given to me On wings of glory, a cherished beauty My butterfly garden of splendid views Bestows trails of wings in vibrant hues But one brilliant monarch floating on the wind Landed for a visit and became a dear friend By Rhonda Johnson-Saunders, April 1,2012 for a Butterfly's Trail of Kisses contest (Gail Doyle) first place

Madame Butterfly

Her gentle nature, soft like rain
held fragile beauty, like her name
In this fragrant blossom, he found bliss 
Eluded her with a tender kiss
And gentle strokes would touch her cheek
A promised love he wouldn't keep
With fickled breath, he took her heart
He toyed with her, he played a part,
He stole her love, then sailed away
And told her he'd be back some day
Her face looked out from ocean shore
With undying hope, a child she bore
Sun and moon would hear her song, faint sweet echo of a song
her cradled child, the days grew long
They waited in the ocean's breeze
With futile hopes that wouldn't cease
The stars were shining, love was crying
With pining ache, her heart was dying
Convinced his love had been so pure
She learned a truth,... could not endure
Another shore he had a wife
In disgrace, she took her life!
