Connections: July 13

2 Comments

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERAYesterday was sticky hot

the air was thick as mush

but I had to grab my camera

and get out there in a rush.

This visitor, this summer sprite,

this unabashed  flirt,

demanded my

attentive eye

and mud upon my skirt.

But would he alight, becalm his wings?

Sit still for just a

mo?

No!

He just kept whirring

blurring

flitting to and fro.

I chased that Casanova

’round marigold and bee

and wondered if my neighbors

had a butterfly net for me.

  1. Hot and humid here today. We went outside to have a glass of wine, lasted 20 minutes and couldn’t take it any more. I applaud your persistence to capture that little guy. 🙂

    • Thank you for the applause. I return it for your noble try. A glass of wine on a summer evening sounds idyllic, but not when it starts to boil in the glass.
