WINGS OF SPRING

WINGS OF SPRING

madam butterfly -  so adorned in sinful array,
even oz’s ruby red or classic silver slipper.

their symmetry caught on leaves,
doppelgänger wings of spring.

in natural habitat, millions of colors -
fly, dance, mesmerize, delight the eyes.

little jewel-tone airplanes glide –  a few spoken for:
in azure blue, aztec yellow, polkadots on orange.

the entire kaleidoscope of serendipitous hue,
could collectively land on one singular pair.

whether reigning small or monarch, they lift
our soul, spasm our heart - with shoulder taps,

appear luminescent in the sun, like a cathedral window,
adorned with memories of all lives heaven bound.

A lovely poem, but I don't see many butterflies any more. I am in farming country and I fear that the things they use to make their crops flourish are not good for butterflies. Congratulations on your win. Love, Joyce
