sunshine on my back
and on the butterfly wings
at rest on lantana
flitter and flutter
his wings and my heart
enjoy a warm glow
As our weather starts to get colder, we have more butterflies stopping by our flowers. They are mostly Monarchs on their southerly migration. Time yourself for a minute. In that time how many different kinds of butterflies can you name? Now pick one to write your own poem. Have fun writing.
"Why should I not sit, every morning of my life, on the hillside, looking into the shining world." Mary Oliver
