Poems As Butterflies

There is a beauty in lucidity when images are wondrously concrete. . . a butterfly’s opalescent wings unfolded on a shiny leaf - not flitting about . . . Poems that don’t elude, the ones I choose to peruse.

Great! Poems as butterflies, if there fltting about like here and there and somewhere else. You want to read the ones with their wings spread firmly rooted on a green leaf its tints and hues exposed.

yet you would miss the deepest gems in mine or undersea, as floating on the surface in the sunlight you would be, how mush brighter is the light when rising from the dark, how much bigger is the joy when not found on a lark? Congrad's Andie...Light & Love

Interesting thoughts penned in this one..Very well written...I am glad that I chose this one to read this A.M..."Had Times Been Different"...This was about my adoptive father..He had a temper and he could go from happy to explosion but what always got me was he could turn that anger off and then he was fine.. It was a rare thing for him to be concerned about what his explosion did to those around him..He could just walk away and be back jolly again and everyone in his wake stressed to the max.SK

Butterflies are amazing&beautiful to me. even if they only live for a day. and yes, "Blind As A Bat" was a break-up poem, kind of a while after.His name was interesting, it was Fade.We got back together though.its just guys my age no matter what act stupid,or are 'actually' not so smart.And that sounds funny that Alvin wore blue contacts when he already had blue eyes.hah.And on Feburary 18.it will be a year that i've been here.
