Butterfly Wings

With words I fly a butterfly
Hover where the flowers lie
Interlink with them and think
And dip my pen in colored ink.

Phrases flow like falling snow
Garnish all enthralling glow.
To rise with morning’s mist of kiss
And make the glory, morning’s bliss

Their nectar fills my poets pen
To web the wings to frame and then
I wash the cling with hues of due
And fly into a sky of blue.

I fair above the world of wear
And dance upon the clouds in dare.
Build my castles niche by niche
Word by word, stitch by stitch
  
That rakes the harp in Isles of wile.
So when I wake, I smile a smile.

...and in the smile, so beguiled was she
that she sang, and danced, most merrily
she twirled about in fair harmony
and all because of little ol' me...

Sy,
I think you dip your pen in wisdom's ink
and in the colors of your dreams
Very lovely.

Seymour Tabin,

Thank you, what a wonderful way to wake up this morning. Beautifully written, wonderful imagery. I was that butterly awaking from my cocoon. I was there, just for the moment.:

Ahhhh, so this is the secret to your beautifully colored words.

If need be, may I borrow some of your ink?

Very special writing -- thank you, Marti
