Week #39
Prompt: Color(ful)

Kindred spirits meet
Butterfly finds it's flower
Transcending logic
Conceivably happenstance
Imaginably 'twas fate

Morning Rel,

I know you have posted pictures of flowers and are poeming about butterflies. But I see, I see this as a poem about lovers.

Thanks. :)

Hee hee- there must be a love affair between the butterfly and the flower- who can resist either?
Just wonderful, Rel!

Those flowers are some of the most sensual I've ever seen. Are they hibiscus? As usual, beautiful poem.

Didn't they make a movie about the flower in the second photo? I think it was called The Color Purple.

Excellent verse. I beleive, sometimes to my detriment, that everything happens for a reason. Serendipity, some call it.
