monarchs, swallowtails,
and the cloudless sulphur – we

butterflies on mom’s petunias,

september arrives

september arrives
with the monarch butterflies,
five generations

all at once waving hello
and goodbye in our backyard

all at once, you are

all at once, you are
everywhere – in the butterfly
visiting the west

side, the dragonfly passing
through the garden this morning

afternoons in our
backyard, the wasp tries the lock
again, two humming-

birds dive-bomb past the feeder,
a butterfly flaps its wings

there’s expectation

there’s expectation
in the unexpected – a pair
of wings picking out

a single blossom between a
skyscraper and its shadow

you plant butterfly

perhaps you and i

our butterfly stage –

love is a run-on

love is a run-on
pleasure that gathers all
gestures into context

context is a butterfly
net thirty minutes
deep capturing
delicate words

words are small, wild
animals caught
and released
after tagging and
studying them with love

love is a run-on
reverie that needs
no context to roam

blow hard, and a handful

blow hard, and a handful
of september
days will burst forth
from their hibernation
like roosting
butterflies, each
with tinseled
wings and
radiant applause
