Filemot – my new word

I’ve been trying to write a poem
because

I saw a wild cherry leaf falling
from a tree —

flit, flut, flot
finally landing flat upon a splash of purple aster flowers;

for a moment, while it was falling
I thought of mottled butterflies, looking

for last feeds of nectar
before frost and dying; so, it fooled me

and yesterday, I  discovered
the word filemot

and needed to find a way to use it –
(this link includes pronunciation)
