In Earnest of a Butterfly

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers


In Earnest of a Butterfly

 

 

 

I caught a fleeting glimpse today
of a monarch butterfly


there,

before my naked eye
he fluttered by

as though shopping for a daisy

I inquisitively stood  

as he came into view,
scrutinizing the idiosyncrasies of
his tapered wings


Magnificent was he,

levitating to loftier heights

 

like a dancing string

to the tail of a kite ~

I caught!

Words dance like the butterfly's "tapered wings" through the eloquent and lyrical verses. Nature's living garland. Love the kite imagery too. Beautiful!
