Butterfly Poems: 279 / 500

A Fairy Tale

Rating: 4.9

Naked save for her delicate butterfly wings
She lays on a toadstool as mother nature sings
A posy of wild flowers held up to her nose
Long pixie slippers curl over her toes

A golden dragonfly hovers curiously above
Illuminating an aura of an enchanting love
The caterpillar arches her perfectly painted form
for the handsome snail with a hope so forlorn

Two magic mushrooms in wizard shaped hats
Three ladybugs chat upon their grassy mats
Time passes slowly in this moment just for me
As I gaze happily into my painted fantasy


I was intrigued with your name. Why Tia Maria! have you relatives in Brazil or Portugal? Wonderful poem! Congratulations

A lovely poem, Tia. I believed that Alice in wonderland thought. I wrote one once called 'Sunlight's World' but it was not as glittering whimsical. I shall have to look it up. Adeline
