A Kaleidoscope of Butterflies

flutters of beauty
hovering over dewy flowers
dawn seen with sparkling hues
welcome them, the floating colours

little ballerinas
wings of little fairies
friends of nimble elves
dragonflies hover, guarding them

harbinger of visitors
to homes
when flutterby drops by
and rests on your window sill

for all butterflies
the one much loved
is Rajah Brooke butterfly
commemorating the White Rajah

his star shone once
among the tribes of Borneo
faded now, even as his butterflies
flutter around like a lingering memory.
