1575


bougainvillea tip
partnered with a butterfly -
they dance on the wind

just dance on the wings of wind
the purity of rhythm

nuance of rhythm
sway--ing soul--fully then ripe
a fruit ready drops

blossoms fall to end sequence
flip to scallop further on

Butterflies have always been favorites of mine. Beautiful but short lived but with a life full of dancing and helping others to replicate. Something like beautiful midwives!

Nicely written Tankas, Gillena. I was so caught up by the thoughts I was thinking that the butterfly was a bumble bee. Silly me. But the thoughts the same, hang on tight when the wind blows or you two can be separated when you don't want to be.

Glad too to see you writing for Josie Two Shoes. I have off and on, I helped her get started. But I don't have time right now to keep on. We are FB friends also,
