'Wings on the Sun...'
Swallowtail, Yellow and Black Butterfly ~ Gold Sunflower

Golden Wings

Butterflies
circle spring flowers
 that is in splendid bloom,
fluttering their wings
grasping gently the golden
cone of honey within the
center of their found treasure
 
Taking leisurely sips
from the golden food
that will nourish again
their weakened wings,
that will take them on
a flights journey -
where butterflies go
 
Golden halos
surrounds their
delicate descending
path of discovery,
protecting their wings
from danger as they
drink the golden nectar
 
Strength revises
vibrant delicate souls
purifying an inner core,
cleansing and preparing
for a flight ascending
to a glorious height -
 as golden wings soar
 
 - Rhoda Galgiani
