Tanka Tuesday :: Butterfly

fluttering wings
a treasure to be found
from the soft bed of the ocean
fresh stars
the strong colours are hypnotic
the chains of a promise
pearls and pure gold

Ekphrastic photo is the prompt for Tanka Tuesday this week. Annette Rochelle Aben provided us with the gorgeous photo above. As soon as I saw it, I was reminded of the freedom and passion the butterflies are able to demonstrate while kissing the flowers in my garden. I wrote a butterfly cinquain (2, 4, 6, 8, 2, 8, 6, 4, 2) to complement my thoughts.
