Whispering Wings

Whispering wings fluttering by - purple and pink; orange and red. Sapphire and green ones caught my eye as they shimmered over my head. Enchanted, I then ran behind whispering wings fluttering by and followed them, hoping to find where they might go with twilight nigh. Magically painting the sky, they flitted too quickly away. Whispering wings fluttering by vanished into the waning day. Beyond the horizon, then gone like a dream was each butterfly - a beautiful dream then withdrawn . . . whispering wings fluttering by. Jan. 12, 2022 For A Strand (1074) Poetry Contest

I love birds. Alas I see so little of them since Malta will soon be one whole building site. But I saw many on my trips abroad. Lovely poem enriched by some alliteration. Hugs.

Andrea, 'Beyond the horizon, then gone like a dream was each butterfly' Marvelous flight caught in your poem's net. Wonder will they return in a new dawn rising? -Richard
