  1. A flittered presence amongst a field so grande, where color sprays, such a visual demand. Our eyes can surely not resist, to rest our gaze upon their paletted bliss. And so each year, butterflies take to the winds, gathering nectar, pollinating next year’s gardens and fields. This poem brings the reader snuggly into the midst of a butterfly’s beauty as it intoxicates our thoughts and renders our soul … adrift.

    Title: Pollen Prance

    Gather pollen’s powdery dew
    take a breath, flutter & fly
    forest eyes and raven’s breath
    hail your flight, upon the sky.

    Tip toe, curtsy & petal prance
    a taste of nectar
    absorbs you, like a tranquil trance.

    Valley highs and prairie plains
    boisterously boost of last year’s flame
    time in essence, in short remain.

    Tip toe, curtsy & petal prance
    Take my breath
    …. flutter & fly.

  2. one night
    I dreamt
    that I was a butterfly
    flying from flower
    to flower

    enjoying the fresh air
    and the sweet tasting
    nectar of the flowers

    while dodging the birds
    and the bees
    determined to do me in

    then the butterfly
    fell asleep
    and dreamt
    that he
    had been turned
    into a man

    and he was miserable
    wearing a suit
    commuting to an office
    not having time

    to smell the flower
    and wander the garden
    down the path
    hither and thither

    the man
    fell asleep
    and dreamt
    that he was
    again a butterfly

    was he a man
    or a butterfly
    only God knows
    and he is silent
    as always
