I have been to the butterfly exhibit. This makes me imagine a man, holding a net and running around the parking lot. A lovely write. A fun write. Hugs. Ann

How embarrassing for the person trying to keep "butterfly thoughts" in, but they silently fly for everyone to see. Truly beautiful Maureen. Thanks.

Very unique - made me think and that's a good thing! Your mind is so unique, not that everyone isn't but not all make me sit up like yours does. Good luck in the contest and all else. Poetry hugs ... CayCay

Butterflies' wings move quickly, but gently and you've captured them beautifully in your poem, Maureen. In Callaway Gardens, Georgia, there is a butterfly pavilion. None can escape and they are actually bred there. Wish you could see it. Best wishes for success in Dear Heart's contest! Hugs, Carolyn

The struggle is real! Clever as always. Especially love "Butterflies have the quietest wings/ Defying the weight of their flutterings"
