Butterfly and Pansy

Floating on a gentle breeze
Zigzaging across the field with ease
A white butterfly flew over the flowers
Briefly he lit and touched a cornflower

Please come over here and visit me
Called a little brown faced yellow pansy
Come and kiss me too it said
And over to the pansy the butterfly sped

Lightly with its wings it lit and grazed
The sweet face of the pansy raised
For just a brief moment in time
And then the butterfly flew off to climb

High in the air away it went
Returning from whence it was sent
The pansy raised its face up to the sun
Watching as the butterfly went up and went on

Over the field to more flowers to light
On each one for another brief moment in time
Spreading cheer to each flower in the field
Spreading pollen of happiness to be yield

Very nice poem.

I like this piece best among all that you have written thus far.

I love the personification of the flowers and their conversation with the butterfly, busy spreading cheer and happiness among them . It makes the poem come alive, filled with the beauty of the gentle breeze and the sun, and the colourful display of flowers sprinkled in the field.
Reading your poem gives me a high, a NATURE high, for Nature is my first love.

Once again, thanks for posting this lovely piece.

Here are some more white butterflies for you:

Maybe it's an age thing, but these days I seem to attract more moths than butterflies - but what the heck? A serene poem with a gentle order of rhyming couplets.

Kathy...This poem was so beautifully and tenderly written that it made my soul smile.

After reading this I think you should expand your writings to include childrens stories. What child would not revel in the beauty and the wonder of hearing the conversation between the beautiful butterfly and the awaiting flowers.

Thank you so much.
Your kind and gentle spirit is expressed in your writings.

To be kissed by your butterfly is like
A touch of love!

Such a vision you have left in one’s mind’s eyes & heart!

Thank you Redex. Wrote this last summer after saw all these white butterflies flitting over the grass in the park I was walking in. Butterflies are one of my favorite things in nature. I have others as well, but the butterfly is so much fun to watch!
