Daintily flying high and gliding low.

Fluttering petal soft wings.

The butterflies alight upon a bough;

Here to rest awhile before taking to wing.

There are now a host of such creatuers.

Entangled and chasing intricate patterns in the air.

Flowers being the hunts main feature.

A sudden breeze hastens the butterflies dispersal.

Toward heaven they take flight and fright.

Butterflies sail and soar by, in refuge, communal.

Alarm over: the flowery scents an attractive delight.

Uniting, momentarily; perched upon the plants.

Dividingly they scatter in swirls of brightly coloured pennants.
