A Dance on Butterflies

Kenneth, loves satire and writings to spotlight others, but he also has an "addiction" so to speak, to dramatic and abstract/prose poetry.


And so, we will dance o'er with your butterfly smile
On butterflies gold dancing as angels wink,
When skyline's faded away
We shall walk slowly.

And so, when lovers and love has its tests
To find the frame and foundation of sure.
My eye shall meet with yours then
Rainfall shall fall down slowly.

You've tamed my lightning bolts when days we're young
We knew no time, limits, or ends of love so shy.
We ceased to sing. We ceased to write.
And stallions rode away slowly.

I took one glance from your hypnotic fingers
Lacing a heart, mind, and sweet flowers
Lace, veils, and butterflies kingdoms
And the sunsets roll on lowly away.

What went flying from our one yesterday now dreamed
Of darkness, love knife blades and schemes?
Golden banks of mythical rivers serene
Angels wings slowly sleeping away.

A unicorn, a cobra tamed and soft lay gently in hands in loft
A garden once planted a tree dead from hatred black.
But starlight and untrue midnights
Love slowly grows deeply by.

I cannot measure our dances, capture your stances, or watch
While kittens and puppies laugh in skies with clouds.
We both gaze in laughter sharp and keen
While our hands love fold slowly down.

        Gypsy Rose Lee,

        Thank you so much. I love those gorgeous Monarch butterflies as thy fly away from summer telling me that fall is coming--both a happy and sad feeling at once.

        Write me anytime.
