Swallowtails butterfly

among grass stalks

winged meadow-weaving


sky’s aflutter

with sleek-feathered birds

shrill darts





sky to meadow

with wing and needle tails

essence of blue and gold

sun and skyborn.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Weather’s been weird all over I think! We had a couple unusually coolish days and now are heading back into the heat. Summer is not my fav season here in Austin, lol! 🙂 Hope ya’ll get good rain & no bad storms, Jane 🙂

      2. It usually happens that spring is over in a flash, a few weeks of getting used to it not being winter and suddenly everything is in flower and beginning to wilt in the heat. We’ve had plenty of spring this year 🙂
