Journey With Me

Written for:  Sunday Muse #223

My Prussian blue dress echoes
in the star-shined wings
of my companions and helpers,
blue Morpho butterflies.  They
guide me on journeys, lifting
me up into aqua adventures
through night skies.  I nest
on brushes of wheat fields,
always carrying my feather
-light purse that bonds me
to my lovely blue-winged
friends.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    When I was thirteen, I had a dress like that. Rather amazing. I like the comparison to the blue butterflies. A lovely interpretation of the picture.

    What blessed familiars to have. They can lift under any circumstance and can flutter away any threats.
