When the Door Closes

My secret life as a poet, writer, photographer…




Monarch on Leaf

In the garden’s shade
on a commonplace leaf, a
wondrous butterfly,
whose delicate wings yet sends
it fluttering through the air!

*Good luck to everyone participating in the A-Z April Challenge! See you next year. 🙂

She Wanders Endlessly

She wanders endlessly,
Ellie does,
fluttering from site to site.
Happily, surely –
for happiness would never elude
one so beautiful and bold.
Who’s to know?
Who can say?
Not I
nor you.
Perhaps not even Ellie.
