Flutterby
told Pillycat
of blue sky wonders,
powdery rainbow wings
and fragrant syrup from buttercups.

Pillycat was quite skeptical
and chose an exclusively leafy world
(thank you very much).
“Nonsense,” she thought
as she chewed her way through
another plectranthus.
“Imagine the likes of me
with wings!
Ha!”

Flutterby
raised her wings
and flap-flap-glided
away.
