Butterfly Flutters

This pair of angel wings in Rockport, MA survived the rocky entrance to a small, peaceful wharf in the heart of Bearskin Neck, where I was searching for sea glass. Delicate as they were, they made it to the shore intact. I knew at once how they got there!  I packaged these fragile wings carefully in my suitcase and brought them all the way home with me, where they now rest in the east-facing windowsill of my reading room here on the Johnson Funny Farm in rural Georgia.  I used a Pantoum verse form today to revisit my original post from October 16, 2021.  


 Butterfly Flutters

my mother appeared, unexpected

on White Wharf’s peaceful shore

 from Heaven, on delicate angel wings ~

     a glimmering butterfly kiss 

on White Wharf’s peaceful shore 

shimmering miracle, hug unfurled –

     a glimmering butterfly kiss 

celestial seraph’s feathery wisps

shimmering miracle, hug unfurled –

       eyelash-flutter cheekbone brusher 

 celestial seraph’s feathery wisps

 tender moment, tickling breeze

       eyelash-flutter cheekbone brusher 

 from Heaven, on delicate angel wings ~

 tender moment, tickling breeze

 my mother appeared, unexpected

Rewritten as verse from original post October 16, 2021
