Enchanted

We walked CameraZOOM-20140723101129819
Today
Together
Across wet grass
And into murky puddles.
A monarch
Sailed effortlessly
Above you
Turned around many times
And drifted towards you
Dreamily.
I thought perhaps it would
Land on your shoulder
Or carress your ear
With its silky wing.
After a time
It flew
Enchanted ahead
Of you
And you pulled me along
And chased it.
Then
It grew tired
Of being chased
And it flitted into the mouth of a lily
Far into the deep
Of all the lilies that hid
Her milk white petals from you.
You searched

But the garden
With its army of summer flowers
Kept you out.
