Special Feature Collaborative Poem—By ayaz daryl nielsen and Peggy Dugan French—United States

among the roses

By ayaz daryl nielsen and Peggy Dugan French

the ecstasy of butterflies
as they dance between the flowers
warm summer sun across their wings
so gracefully they waltz among the roses
aflutter with the grace of the infinite
touching our souls with their elegant charm

  2. Every good, clear image of a butterfly I have been able to capture, has been near a rose bush. This fine poem sheds light on that.

    Yours is a great capture, Peggy and Ayaz.
