A Gust Of Imagination

The wind
Makes paper airplanes
Without following a pattern
And teaches dance
To the daisies
Without playing a note
Sails flotillas of
Leaves without
Passing out paddles
And for an encore
Flutters an autumn leaf
Into a butterfy
When I walked by

This is for Poetry Pantry at Poets United poetryblogroll.blogspot.com.  I did see a red orange leaf, web-tethered to a chain link fence, flutter and thought it was a butterfly...enjoy :-)

    "The wind

  19. Hi Sara, I don't see how I could have missed this poem in March when you posted for Poetry Pantry, as I know I would have commented had I seen it. Sigh. Thank you now for visiting Poetry Jam. I do like the way you wrote about the magic of the wind. I hope our paths will continue to cross in the blogosphere. You always write neat stuff!
