a jumble of wildflowers
across meadows and bowers
blooms atop green stems covered
with butterflies that hover
spotlighted under sunbeams
in vibrant flutters they teem
then I awake and it seems
my vision was just a dream.
Prompt at Twiglets – a thought on “dream bin”
The butterflies we may never see again in Britain – BBC News
A report by Butterfly Conservation warns that 24 of 58 species may soon disappear from our shores. Five more species are threatened with dying out than when the charity last compiled a Red List, 11 years ago.
The loss of these butterflies is so sad. Lovely poem, Debi.
It is sad. Thanks Misky

I’ve been lucky to visit a few ‘Butterfly houses’ and to see a vast variety. The back yard seems to hold fewer and fewer… though I have plantings just for them… the butterflies.
I did read resently that in Mexico there were sightings of an increase in Monarch Butterflies.
I hope so, Jules. I’d hate to lose the butterflies.
