Fly Around and Then Away
Thursday, September 04, 2008  12:41:00 PM

by Carol Dee Meeks



Poetry
TO: Carol Meeks
FROM: Gulf Coast Poets Contest Judge/Critic
Hi, Carol:

Congratulations! Your poem, "Fly Around and then Away," came in THIRD in the 2008 August Contest. Nice work!

gulfcoastpoets@gmail.com


Transfixed by intense
patterns, exquisite
painterly hues, butterflies
take wings - live on the outer
edge of their souls---
known as flutterbys.

They are the queen of serene.
They investigate leaves of trees.
They flit, flutter, fly.

They race, hurry, scurry
to perfection,
each flower
each inspection.

They move from each target
as elegant material like georgette.
Like a hit song drops from the charts,
these gorgeous insects steal your hearts.

Their brilliant colors on display---
run through veins on summer days,
soothe those watching their ways
their beauty takes your breath away.

And that's what Spring is all about,
like butterflies that race around.
We come alive, lose winter's frown,
watch our dreams like foliage sprouts.
