Butterfly Breathing

Image

Photo by me

 

The breath of a butterfly

skims its secret

atop bush grasses unheard

 

a sunlit blossom

blinking colour

hanging on petal dreams

 

above

spiked yellow grasses

and below

twitching clouds

 

whose swift mimicry

defined in paper thin wisps

is sky blown to the edge

 

 yet still you dangle

in fidgety flutter

breathing in moments

like they count
