A Butterfly's Freedom

The Tiger Swallowtail visits me every day Kissing each flower, along its way Fluttering through my yard, in a happy flight Lifting my spirit with every sight So delicate, in its freedom to fly Creating its own dance, on air up high I stop to watch, every time it passes by Wishing to be just like the butterfly Heidi Sands 6/19/20

Hello Heidi … a butterfly gives us a feeling of how life can be so beautiful with daintiness and colour. Very nice and calming verse Heidi - thank you - Lindsay

In my garden I loved to observe the flowers fly and always I tried to photograph them when they stop to sip some nectar from a bloom. Your poem is really so joyful as a butterfly's flight my dearest friend, Heidi. Hugs xxx
