Poets are like butterflies

butterflies fluttering...
 
wings the color of salmon  
landing on a grey stone wall  
 
like graffiti they paint their life  
painting the wall a shade of rose  
 
 
she stands gazing...motionless  
dressed in her gown of white  
as her honey-blonde hair  
 
draped over her shoulders  
like a white orchid dancing  
in the twilight...
 
blush of pink blossoms
upon her cheeks, honey on her lips  
eagerly waiting to be kissed
 
as the water is poured by Aquarius
she tumbles into the high grass  
 
as hummingbirds hum about,  
the birds and the bees...
 
flit from flower to flower sipping  
sweet nectar, like a wasp  
laps with his sharp tongue  
 
for poets are like butterflies  
we find the grace in words  
 
as we craft our stories  
watching bluebirds fly

I am finding this rebirthing process quite liberating to me poetry is all about the art, not a popularity contest...sometimes you have to take a break from the humdrum and the norm, and branch out your horizons, rediscovering the love of the written word again...yes this does have a hint of sensuality but a hint is enough sometimes don't you think
