two worlds

a brisk breeze brushes off sultry summer from my skin

through graveyard grasses it stirs to a tempest
old bones confined to rest listen for the last trumpet

brown butterflies fling themselves like tumbleweed
half torn from its moorings, a spider’s flag, filigreed
– in intermittent lulls we re-compose – in opposition

Taking up the Ragtag daily challenge of Wind with a cherita style poetry form

  1. I love the image – grasses in motion – wonderful. And also the word image of brown butterflies flinging themselves like tumbleweed – wonderful. It conveys perfectly the erratic nature of butterfly flight. 🙂
