A World of Butterflies
Boundless butterflies were elegantly dancing through the periwinkle skies like royalty
when a little creature opened its eyes
to the light for the very first time.
The little creature wiggled its body,
and saw its very first sight:
endless colors taking flight.
Violets and oranges and blues and greens—
all swirled together in perfect harmony.
Elegant oranges were drifting amongst the orchids,
and vivid blues dashing between the mulberry bushes.
The little creature felt the purest bliss
as it continued to gaze upon its exquisite new tribe.
The glimmering ruby ones crowded around the little creature
and soon they all came to a slow flutter and there was a soft mutter…
The newest edition was different.
The little creature smiled, its big admiring eyes
bouncing from butterfly to butterfly.
“Its wings are blue and brown,”
the butterflies said with a frown.
“And purple and grey.”
“Something’s not right, why does the little creature look this way?”
The little creature spread its unique wings,
and looked at them pleased.
It’s festive smile charmed the many butterflies, and soon, they all took to the skies.
The little creature was the moth in a world of butterflies.
