C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4216 comments You have until the 30th of May to post a poem and from the 31st to around the 4th of June, we’ll vote for which one we thought was best!

Please post directly into the topic and not a link. Please don’t use a poem previously used in this group. Only one submission per person is allowed.

Your poem can be of any length!

This week’s topic is: Butterfly

Thanks goes to Garrison and Daniel J. for suggesting the topic!

The rules are pretty loose. You could write a poem about anything that has to do with the subject/photo but it must relate to the topic somehow.

Most of all have fun!

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : Ylfrettub
Poet : Edward Davies

Flying gracefully on high
A vision for the soul
Soaring, soaring through the sky
Attraction is your goal

Landing softly on a branch
As summer turns to spring
And snow, a backwards avalanche,
Envelops everything

A chrysalis begins to shape
Upon your wing’d form
Which gathers round you, snugly draped
To keep your body warm

A final encasing appears
Your wings it uninstalls
Where once there flew a butterfly
A caterpillar crawls.

Garrison Kelly (cybador) | 9094 comments Ah-ha! So that's why you spelled butterfly backwards in your title. Good one, Edward!

C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4216 comments Title: The Butterfly
Author: CJ

Such sweet tenderness the light creature flies
Fluttering from flora to entering skies
A delicate beauty this thing here beholds
Such wonderful journeys it has long untold
It is such a lively one; furious wings
The beautiful butterfly makes an aura, serene
