As I stood in my garden amongst my flowers, a parade of blue butterflies was drifting; past my lovely brilliant primrose rock garden, they kissed a purple cornflower growing. They stopped and caressed rainbow painted daisy, drifting over to drooping bleeding hearts; resting on white campania with their trumpets, like sparkling garden gems quietly hovering. Blue larkspur and columbine called for them, the tiny rubies twirled over in a waltzing dance; and between yarrow, sage and yellow tick seed, they spotted echinacea and came fluttering. Floating on over they kissed orange scabiosa, then the assemblage of sweet butterflies left; just stopping for a quick sip of fountain water, and gone this parade of fluttering blue gems. __________________________ August 11, 2015 Poetry/Verse/"Fluttering Gems" Copyright Protected, ID 15- 699-038-0 All Rights Reserved.

the story of the butterfly, Beauty and the beast....some are afraid of caterpillars, fear of the butterfly is the least....it is like escaping damnation, totally protected by a pod....the journey of the butterfly is almost as Beautiful As Accepting God....;)

As someone who spends many hours pulling weeds from my gardens, this poem gave me a walk through another garden, a very colorful garden...curious, what color were the butterflies...good luck in the contest.
