That is a different kind of poem for you Tom. I like it. Calm. Meditative.
Thank you John. One of my goals in writing is to be different. I always want to risk failure in change and unease in the comfort level of my writing.This was pretty much as it was. I have always been very slow at reading hints and innuendo.
It was a muggy afternoonand the air was thick with sweatThe Angels were playing the double headerBecause of the rain out the night before with thunderstormsAs I am eating watermelonWatching the first gameon the television with the door wide open and the fan blowing A white butterfly came insideand started fluttering aroundA good sign as I watched it landon my screen trying to get outAfter awhile of watching it sitI rescued it by cupping my handsaround it gently, feeling the wingsfluttering inside my palmsI released it outside to watch it fly freely awayFeeling good that I was able to help the butterfly outAnd feeling like it was happyto be set outside flying away
I agree with Tom. This is great!!

I really love your repetition. Have you ever tried the villanelle? I think you'd like it.
