Beauty to my Beast

A fragile regard,
softening the hard,
sharp tread of my heavy thoughts,
halting the dark stream.
Bending down, it seems
you have netted me, I’m caught.

You flatten and stare
an unspoken dare,
feeling the power released
in your azure eyes,
I am mesmerised.
You are beauty to my beast.

I am linking this to Muri’s Poetry Scavenger Hunt ( and Prompt No 4, to write an Alouette. Thank you Val for another inspiring challenge.

This photo was taken on a walk at the weekend when a Peacock butterfly flew into our path. (In reality, I am happy to say, there were no dark thoughts …)
