I See…

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 loss of these butterflies is so sad. Lovely poem, Debi.

    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.
