Butterfly Words

A poem is a catch
Of butterfly words
That I chase with a pen
Within a paper mesh

The similes scamper
But I pinch their rims
My eyes are for rhyme
Though I never have time

I seek to make beauty
Collected in prose
In a language safari
For a substitute Hobby

My styles amateur
And not so complex
But I love a good Verse
With rare Haiku figures

A poem is catch
Of butterfly words
That flutters in the sky
Only seeing in my mind

    Kevin Patrick...hmmmm...A northern Italian in disgise, no doubt! LOL! Enjoyed this piece...Your acute attention to tight, crisp linage affords your audience an eye-pleasing read...Best advice...Don't be too modest...The verse of some Amateurs can beat the blarney stones out of some of our Classic Poets! ! ! ~FjR~ (Report) Reply
