  1. Aah, the serenity of a butterfly garden. Butterflies are so unpredictable in flight. I love how you captured that scattered flighty flight path in your words.

  2. Welcome to Poetry Friday, Robin! Thanks for sharing this lovely butterfly. (My daughter is an early childhood/elementary ed major and loves kindergarten - one of my favorite ages, too!)

  3. Lovely, flitting layout of your poem! Just like they do, as you wrote, 'swooping and spinning'.

  4. Love this! What a great mentor text this would be to show how to take a word and by letter choice and placement it moves. Very nice!
