Attention To Details

by Leslie Anne Bustard

Every yellow round droplet
down the center of each 
white flower on 
each flowering 

of my butterfly bush 
makes me imagine 
the Creator 

to use the tiniest dropper
to place spots of yellow 
that fill all the 

stamens on all the flowered 
bushes in the world;
and I am in awe
