Night Beauties

Butterfly of the night
flutter drawn to the light
I watch your dance with pure delight
with muted colors you take flight.

Moth is such a miserly name
for such a one of night-time fame.
You and your partner fly in game
dodging the drops of summer rain.

  1. Moth’s are my favorite animal. The saturniines, which include the luna moth, only live for a week after coming out of the coccoon. The reason is because their mouths are vestigial and don’t have any real function. They fly, mate, lay eggs, and die. They are beautiful and impermanent, the flowers of the animal kingdom.
