I watched the shifting kaleidoscope
as it spiraled through the air
colors and patterns colliding
as it flittered here and there.

Delicate and feathery,
it settled near the ground
through the garden gate
where bright flowers may be found.

Butterflies of yellow and grey
wings all rimmed with white
perfect gauzy practitioners
of such aerial delight.

I watched in admiration
at their aerobatic display
of joy and light hearted laughter
in the way they flit and sway.

When they left, I stood
and sadly watched them go
still laughing with their wings
as they darted too and fro.

Till next time ~Peace ~JPP
