February 9th

Chive blades stretch upwards, 
a golden-winged butterfly
smells their spicy scents

Excellent imagery in this one. The earth bound chives calling the airbourne butterfly to it using its scent. The way the chives stretch upwards is a positive movement, not passive, as I often think plants are. They strive in different ways to us. I also loved the colours - green of chive calling the golden butterfly and then the last line with spicy scents in it, all golden-brown.... Freya
