Wings flutter through humid air.
Sky light shimmers,
through open-paned windows.
Thousands  of species... fly.

Quiet wings make no sound.
Water droplets glisten on leaves,
temperatures bead sweat on foreheads.
Plants...become graciously green.

Legs traveling from warm bodies.
Suction cups attach—landing on finger tips,
wings of color visit cotton-clothed children.
Life flies and watches us grow.
Single butterfly...landing softly on my pink striped t-shirt.

This is a poem that is to be submitted to the Milwaukee Public Mueseum poetry contest. It is aimed to depict the butterfly vivarium and my experience there as a young child.
