Butterfly Magic

Oh, please come my way, Sapphire butterfly dancing past With bright, gold-tipped wings, For I long to caress you And share in summer’s magic

    3 rough days of work and today is rest! Back on here to read this one as I am one crazy butterfly freak! Last year (when I had a crummy camera), I would lie on the ground at the arboretum waiting for the perfect butterfly picture...wings in full extension and in morning light too! This poem sounds like me trying to draw them to my camera lens for the perfect shot! A sapphire beauty with the backdrop of a completely clear aquamarine sky! Nice tanka! :) Gwendolen

    This is so lovely! Soooo lovely! I wrote my first tanka for this contest. I didn't even know what one was before today...still not sure mine is a true tanka, though.

    You become the butterfly with these words Carolyn; your imagery is beautiful and the dance of this tiny soul is entrancing. Best wishes in the contest my dear, your writes are always wonderful to read! Luv, Lizzie

    Carolyn, this is a delight - the imagery is especially vivid: I close my eyes and I can see this sapphire butterfly with bright gold tipped wings dancing by me!

  1. Date: 5/20/2012 5:20:00 PM

    The word that stuck out to me and brought me a sparkle in my eye is the word magic! Summer's magic to be precise! This is a reveling and precious write my friend! You're glorious here in your glowing poem that you have written! Thank you for writing it Carolyn! Great Work!!

    Beautiful poem, capturing the joy of summers mood

    Lovely. Here in the UK many of our lovely butterflies and bees died this year. We had hot summer in March, the wettest April ever and May has taken us back to winter. The birds have lost a lot of young too. What a pity!! Global warming has a lot to answer for.
