Gold on tiny wings

Purple thistle’s majesty

Colors Harmonize

 

Shadows in sunlight

Reveal a total eclipse

Of backyard flowers

My heart and soul for a time deliciously camped out here waiting for your next verses to rain down on us and colorize the drab smoky rainbows and fluffless clouds all around me, metamorphosing into the butterfly filled skies of your delightful mind here. It was worth my wait. I like the metaphor of the butterfly and its colors representing, well, for once a butterfly and its colors!

The beautiful sites brought to us by Mother Nature just never cease to mesmerize us. The same might be said for the guy who invented color photography, (although I have seen fantastic shots in B&W) this one is magical.

Well penned, my friend. Dick

Colors certainly do harmonize, Patrick, beautiful photo, and the poem got its message across quite nicely. Still, it was the photo that did it for me.
