“How to

Write a Poem

Catch the air

Around the butterfly.”


― Katerina Stoykova Klemer



Elfje:   (also know as a Cinquain)



lightening bugs

warm summers night

caught  in a jar





on butterfly wings

dreams and memories fly by

ethereal seasons




the beautiful garden makes me think
how bright flowers can foster bright thoughts
fountains and feeders for the hummingbird to drink
the whole world dressed in day-glow pink

the brain is flooded with the aroma of blossom
beautiful butterflies pass through on wings of gossamer
above the blue sky is filled with clouds of cotton
the children’s favorite words are “totally awesome”

the calm breeze generates thoughts of a catnap
pleasant nothings to hang one’s hat on
the jasmine vine entwines, natures gift wrap
the unsuspecting lured in by the Venus fly trap

man is the only animal that sees color
meaning Nature designed all this beauty for us
the value is more than just a few sand dollar
the big lesson is: my ego just became smaller

there is a God and it is not me
Her Universe’s design is so complex
without Him my garden could not be
and best to remember, thank God it is free.


ME and the Boss
