On Rainbow Wings

I see her floating in the soft summer breeze
Happily dancing among the flower rings,
Radiating color in every hue,
This butterfly gliding on rainbow wings.

I watch as she kisses the flowers gently
And sings to each of them one by one
A most beautiful heavenly melody
That makes them blush in the summer sun.

One by one each flower joins in song
And I close my eyes, intently listening,
To the beautiful song started in my heart
By this butterfly soaring on rainbow wings.



 ~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~

Terry* This is so beautiful, I know I don't deserve this but I'm so flattered that you would think I do.  What an angel heart you have, Thank you does not say enough, but THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart.  Your beautiful images and floating words....You have a gift to be able to write the way you do and to have you share it with me is an honor.

Terry,
this poem is SO beautiful,
its imagery is perfect...
as are its emotions...
very sweet of you to honor our Butterfly...
she has floated into my heart as well.
excellent writing.
take care poet friend, jm

 There are places inside our souls ...
that have never been touched.
There are places inside our hearts ...
that need to be loved this much.
