Serendipity

Serendipity

An indigo and damask

     butterfly

            alights on my head –

enchanting adornment

 

Knitting I’ve laboured over

            unravels in delight

 

                        Chalk birds

abandon their mournful cries

            and celebrate

 

My eyebrows wing us

    above the shadow doorways

 

to an appointment

            with my muse

Euterpe

 

My poem was inspired by the painting:  ‘Life-Secret 1: The Black Butterfly of Inspiration’ by Caroline Ireland, which I viewed during Bridport Open Studios event. See the image below.
