Watching butterflies

_1610166

White fluttering among the flowers

Chasing and kissing; parting and missing

Landing on the blossom

Sucking up the nectar

Landing on the leaf and depositing

Tiny eggs, miniscule lives

Then fluttering off into the blue sky.

Life deposited; begun with a flutter.

Daily Prompt: The focused butterfly

Sometimes my attention wanders

And I look out of the window

And daydream

Of the summer sun and butterflies.

They, like my mind, go wandering,

Fluttering from leaf to flower

Or word to thought

From sky to plant,

Or dream to reality.

And this brings me back to

Focus on the very thing

Which sent me rambling in the first place:

The butterfly.

And as I watch its solid concentration and focus

On the things that really matter,

I realise I have too much,

Too much irrelevance in my life;

But if I focus

And make the most of every moment

Like the butterfly,

Seeking only the best for my mind, my body

My spirit and my heart

I will too will find happiness

And focus.

 

Worth a thought?
