when choosing totems...

A warning:
When choosing totems...

I (foolishly) let my heart decide
that every time
I saw a magpie,
I would spare a thought
in my heart
for you.

But I've only
been out for half an hour today,
and I've already seen
ten of the little buggers!!

There are a lot of
bloody magpies
in Victoria,
this time of year...

And you,
should be advised
and take heed:

There are
of butterflies
in this world.

(c)Brent M Harpur, 2011.

"Love,as is told by the seers of old, Comes as a butterfly tipped with gold, Flutters & flies in sunlit skies, Weaving round hearts that were one time cold."
