Butterfly Pavilion

Nestled in hills of Pine Mountain, Georgia
Butterflies thrive at Callaway Gardens
Pavilion filled with cornucopia 
Vibrant beauties are captured on the lens

Floral-filled setting surrounded by glass
An international mixture abounds
Each majestic beauty in its own class
Flittering, fluttering, flying around

Magnificent magenta and sapphire
Flaunting deep purples and vivid yellows
The Lord blessed each with stunning attire
And they seem to be such carefree fellows

Pavilion visitors stand in great awe
Marveling at creatures without a flaw

    Our local science center has a similar butterfly exhibit from time to time that my daughter likes to visit. You can spray your finger with sugar water and the butterflies will come to suck it off. Fun poem, Carolyn!

    Awesome writem Carolyn! Very vivid in colors! Good luck in the contest. Thanks for your kind comments on my latest. I'm doing a little better, but now back to where I'd like to be just yet. I felt robbed of something inside me, and although I'm better, it's still somewhat disturbs me. Thanks for caring! Love, your friend, Caroline.

    Carolyn, I especially like the second and third stanzas here with awesome imagery depicting the butterflies fluttering around so colorfully. I think I read of this tourist attraction one time when I was studying lesson plans to teach tourist spots to my students. What a great way to do the sonnet contest!

    Absolutely beautiful! Carolyn. I can see them so perfectly. Top-notch, sonnet. Sure to be at the top of the winners circle. To answer your question - I live most of the year in Canada and part in the US. used to have a place in Florida and boated in the Gulf of Mexico. We now have a place in NC where I am writing to you from now. I will be here until Easter and then back to Ontario, Canada. bfn. Lainie
