the white butterflies

a dozen white butterflies
   flit through green leaves on the trees
      the contrast of their colours
           draws your eyes to them


the ballet of butterflies
   floating on the summer breeze
         holding my rapt attention
             as I watch in awe


bright sun on green summer leaves
    by turns, in shadow and light
       the stark white of butterflies
                enhances the scene

    Colors of green and white together remind me of my high school's colors. Good trio of dodoitsu entries.
