On this March afternoon
outside my dusty window,
a smudge in sunshine
becomes a glint of lemon
and flutters into view:
the first spring butterfly
flashes me a yellow smile.

Sanaa is back with ‘March: An Ode’ by Algernon Charles Swinburne and a new list from which to choose three words and write a poem on a topic of our choice. We also have the added (optional) challenge of throwing in a word or two of our own and mention it somewhere in our post.
I have chosen yellow and dust (as well as March and afternoon) because I have taken as a springboard a haiku I wrote this morning containing the words ‘yellow’ and ‘dusty’ – what a coincidence!
I did actually see the little yellow butterfly but was too slow with my camera!
