Butterfly

daylight……………………..
life continues……………………..
glistening blue-grey sea……………………..
glistening dew-kissed grass and trees……………………..
waiting……………………..
still November air and birdsong……………………..
still blue-grey bay and sky……………………..
still without you……………………..
nightfall……………………..

This is a ‘butterfly cinquain’ – a nine-line syllabic verse
of the pattern 2 / 4 / 6 / 8 / 2 / 8 / 6 / 4 / 2
