Flutter by Butterfly

Fly high, butterfly,
Flutter on, flutter by,
Over the hedgerow,
Over the gate,
Quickly now,
Captivate!
Flutter by, butterfly,
Fly on by, high fly,
Beauty brings
Vibrant colours,
Silent wings,
Insect stunners!

Fly on high, flutter by,
Butterfly, flutter high,
Graceful floating,
Gently gliding,
Ornate coating,
Quietly hiding.
High fly, butterfly
Butterfly, flutter, bye!

        Well done, it was impressive. A bit like my picture here in this poem, I was in the right place at the right time

          Ahh, a fab capture, & a very beautiful poem! I love trees, & especially looking up at them..they’re so majestic, & I find them very inspiring! I often walk into the local forest, for that very reason, which belongs to a Buddhist Centre, but they allow village residents to walk within their grounds.. we’re very fortunate.
