Karl and I went to Walmart in Sheboygan yesterday, and then enjoyed a meal at home.

Today I am reading from books I ordered from different small presses. I often read book reviews in journals.

images and words
fly through the air
searching for a form
searching for a poem

An old poem, from years ago

now that I know
their name
I see them everywhere

I also shared this poem on my site, Poems For Bulletin Boards, on September 13, 2017, with a different picture. Teachers are welcome to use my poems in their lessons, with proper credit. There is a simple language lesson in this poem.

There are several butterfly photos at wpclipart. I have looked at them over the years, and used a few in posts. A picture on my Psalms DaySpring calendar in my little study got me thinking about the poem.
