The Butterfly Dance (Nonet)

Post by midnight_kitty_kat » Fri Sep 06, 2013 8:58 pm

Vivid butterflies dance divinely.
Delicate wings flashing brightly.
Mesmerizing. Picturesque.
In cloudless summer skies.
Enticing delight.
Fascinating.
Exquisite.
Stunning
me.

:bow: I LOVE it! Wow, that is visually striking, and almost changes the way it makes me feel. When aligned to the left it seems like more of a whimsical piece, but this way I think it captures me as a reader much more. Thank you for the suggestion.

Glad you like it. Many poems appear quite different when centered.

:cool:
