Pretty As A Peacock

by Vince Gullaci   May 5, 2019


I didn't know
some ants had wings
or cicadas burrowed their way
out of the soil
and out of their skin
on their way to become
the big winged creature
who sings.

      Milly I was going to post a poem about butterflies but I decided I might
      scare some readers so I better not,
      Vince.
