Butterflies


Delightsome butterflies (not those of the nervous kind)
are tickling my insides. When he's not around,
delectable daydreams flutter sweetly through my mind.
To see him gives me more anticipation 
than when I was a child waiting up for Santa!
His gaze, his kiss, his grace - poetic inspiration.

Feb. 12, 2019 for Nina Parmenter's "Capture That Emotion" Poetry Contest 
Can anyone recapture those sweet butterflies of youth?

The pure bliss of hearing, seeing, tasting the excitement of love. Makes me recollect emotions I thought I had forgotten. Great visual write.

You know, I hadn't thought of it previously, but that feeling we get while waiting to see our love IS much like the way a child feels on Christmas Eve. Love this poem, Andrea! Best wishes in the contest, Carolyn
