catching butterflies collageDid I ever tell you,
Roses are my favorite,
In all colours,
With cherry blossoms round the edges,
And mint leaves on the side,

It was forget-me-nots,
When I was five,
But I still love their violet-blue,
And yellow freckles of pollen,
That melt with your eyes,

I liked sugar cubes then,
And honey in my tea,
With petals on my cake,
And I never screamed about bees,
When I played with the lavender,

I used to believe more,
Thinking everything was beautiful,
Like I could just lie on the grass,
Drinking lemonade forever,
And catching butterflies

No need for me to put together a bio when Nicola-Isobel H has captured the essence in her poem Catching Butterflies

  1. Thanks for the follow of my site. I love poetry and will happily oblige a follow of you. I wrote my own biopic along the same line as this. I titled it “Less About Me”.
    You might enjoy.
