Like the Fluttering Wings of Butterflies

Like the fluttering wings of butterflies swiftly gliding through the open arms of the haunting charms of sacred skies. Flags unfurled, a breathtaking fleet, a royal flotilla, majestic and proud; heroic mariners of will ~ and grace endowed. An orchestra in motion, performing a melodic suite. Wings, like sails, seize the wily breeze, a mystical journey, far, wide and free; tethered in the rhythm, of the power of the sea. Lofty, drifting, clouds above, in silent reverie.

Paulette, I so enjoy watching butterflies, whether they be flying solo or in "a royal flotilla". Love the way you have depicted these graceful creatures. I especially appreciated the line, "an orchestra in motion, performing a melodic suite." It's always a treat to read your gorgeous poetry ~ John
