A dance of butterflies

I watched you from afar

Moving gracefully on a gulf breeze

Moving in and out of the pines

Almost shy in your beauty

Hiding from view.

I followed where you led

And suddenly found

You had gone from my sight

Only to be found sitting

High on my shoulder

Waving your gorgeous wings at me

Like the longest lashes on a beauties eye,

And you stepped about 

Perhaps thinking my orange shirt were a flower

And your wings fluttered and lifted

Sweeping past my cheek the lightest of kisses

As you once again danced upon invisible air

And I smiled at the sight

For it had been much too long

Since I’ve seen your kind

And paradise it is sure to be

With the light hearted whimsy

Of butterfly dances

In my blessed back yard.

Watching the lovely antics of a Monarch flitting about my yard and the most magical of all, landing upon me to rest for a spell before dancing once more before moving on her way.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 17,000 times in 2015. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
