Butterfly Breathing


Photo by me


The breath of a butterfly

skims its secret

atop bush grasses unheard


a sunlit blossom

blinking colour

hanging on petal dreams



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
