Time To Fly

The sun watches all from high in the sky
caterpillar to butterfly, miracles so small
when wings become dry it’s time to fly.

Everything smells wonderful and clean
flowers and grasses grow so tall
the sun watches all from high in the sky.

In the warmth, my mood is serene
outside the sunlight touches all
when wings become dry it’s time to fly.

There is magic in the color green
and music plays in nature’s call
the sun watches all from high in the sky.

The spirit renews in life’s routines
slow and steady the protocol
when wings become dry it’s time to fly.

Many mysteries remain unseen
constantly changing our tiny blue ball
the sun watches all from high in the sky
when wings become dry it’s time to fly.

This is my first Villanelle and I hope it’s written correctly. Written with my friends at dVerse~Poets Pub. Shared with my friends at Poets United.

  1. I liked the sound of the poem and the theme of the sun watching and drying so one can fly. It fits the current dVerse prompt. A traditional villanelle would have only two rhyme sounds, not three, but I was also looking for modifications of the traditional villanelle. So this fulfills the prompt by writing a modified villanelle. I liked the phrases “magic in the color green” and “So many mysteries remain unseen”.

    1. Thank you, Frank! I used the example from Colin Lee’s villanelle and got the 3 rhyme sounds from that somehow. I’m happy for your critique so glad I got it correct and now I know it only takes 2 rhyme sounds which would make it much easier. Lol!
