Chimera Poetry

I have a butterfly mind that flickers  through each day
then here
now there
and I am butterfly colored and my thoughts flutter and soar
and my wings vibrate with music from unseen places that I can only feel
with pounding beats outside my heart
and I stargaze and swear I can hear the stars swooshing like silken gowns across a ballroom floor
in the old black and white movies
I have a butterfly mind and a butterfly life 
never settling
never still
I have butterfly scents and smell like flowers and taste like the breeze
I throw myself into the sky and count the seconds it takes for the leaves to fall beneath me
and I would howl if I were alone
with the wonder and fright and the being fully in this moment feeling
 of it 
butterfly dance 
butterfly mind
beautiful butterfly
and yet
my only waking…

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
