To Be a Painted Lady

Prompt 13: Write an animal poem.


To Be a Painted Lady

If it could be,
then just let it be.

The day I grow
wings of a rainbow,
Transforming my anatomy.

I merge from the ground
Onto a sunflower---
Staring eyes compound.

Freely I fly.
I spread,
then flap
my fore and hind wings
into the sky.
