Five Yellow Butterflies - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Five yellow butterflies
Flapping their wings
Traversed along
Wavy trajectories
Seemed as if
In space.

Five yellow butterflies
Landed on
Five bright red flowers
Waving with breeze
I kept watching
With intense delight.

Five yellow butterflies
Fluttering their wings
Flew away..away
Away into space.

    Those yellow Beijor flors (butterfly in portuguese which means kiss flower) are migrating south
    for the winter. There are many this time of the year going south. Next spring they migrate north
    but only a fraction of their numbers return next spring. A cruel fact of life that applies to God's all. (Report) Reply
