The prompt for Carry On Tuesday http://carryontuesdayprompt.blogspot.com/ is from Muhammad Ali, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
I couldn’t really get a handle on this one. It wanted to wander around, but then, it’s a butterfly.
LIKE A BUTTERFLY
by Mike Patrick
Like a charging butterfly,
you enter my life from everywhere.
Color encircles me, activity explodes.
So softly, your kisses pepper me.
In a silent dance, you float,
mesmerizing me with flitting color,
locking eyes in wonder
that such as you exist.
Only when you alight within my arms
can I be sure you’re real.
Your arms go round my neck,
and I rejoice, within your butterfly net.
