Junie's Place: Butterfly Poem

Butterfly Poem


On my walk today,
I saw a butterfly.
Delicate and free,
I watched it flutter by!
Flitting here and there,
to sample Nature’s best.
Constantly in motion-
determined in it’s quest
to find the sweetest nectar;
though it didn’t linger long.
Elusive, this must be,
for it paused for just a moment,
then was gone.

Like a butterfly,
my thoughts flit here and there.
…returning always, to the sweetest nectar-
memories of you .

Thanks, Pea! I'm happy you enjoy the poems :) This is a recycled one! They are not coming so easily to me these days, for some reason!

...and butterflies are among my favorite things so I like getting pictures of them!
