Written for d'Verse Poets Pub Meeting the Bar "Imagism" 1/19/2012
Swift silent glide through backyard
to light on lavender buddleia.
Pale lemon trimmed in ebony
touched with sapphire, her
wings pulse softly, finding
balance against breeze;
extends proboscis straw, sips delicately,
finding succor in sweet nectar.
Common yellow swallowtail
graces with her beauty.
