More Dancers

They come to dance and flirt and tease and I am compelled to share their photos on this day. They skip and loop and flutter close past your forehead causing such a distraction that you unconsciously wipe your brow leaving a brown streak with the mud from your hand.  And just when you think you have been distracted  to the limit with their inability to form a serious parade, they twirl far away.

Summer's song is not too long
It is not too loud and 
Not so familiar
That you can sing along.

Your eyes begin to adjust
To the carnival lights
Your ears to the buzz of warm rhythms
And your nose to the smell of ripe honey.

And then Summer has waned
The days are smaller on each end
The earth no longer needs your care
And the butterflies laugh and all flirt away.  

My gift to you while I recuperate and miss being outdoors.

  15. You have captured these butterflies so lovingly, with your eye for detail, Tabor. It is good to see them still fluttering around. Canada is too cold for them past mid October. I very much hope you are feeling better soon. Take care Tabor.
