Kathy Gee – Cause and Effect

Cause and Effect

Somewhere in Ukraine,
a finger rests on metal.
Here, a peacock butterfly
basks on a gravestone,
tasting the scent of buddleia
with antennae designed
for the purpose. Ten white dots
on feathered wingtips quiver.
Then the butterfly stamps.

Kathy lives in Worcestershire and has a parallel life working for museums and heritage. She organised the Avoncroft Museum of Buildings poetry trail in 2012, enjoys performance and has an occasional blog at www.wordstring.co.uk – an experimental vehicle for occasional video poems.
