The Flight of the Butterfly

Poetry allows the release of my innermost feelings. Let me explain by painting a picture in your mind with words!

~~~The Flight of the Butterfly~~~

Her form is of a rare beauty, as she eludes a mysterious glance
For she flies with such tranquility, she's the art of true happiness
No one knows where her travels take her, yet she doesn't seem to mind
As soon as she leaves us in awe, we begin the flight of the butterfly

As she takes flight, moving through the meadow, a rainbow glitters in the skies
The wind is beneath her wings as she flies through the bright and beautiful light
- Her wings open - then - expand - dew can be seen on her wings
She flows ever so gently dreaming of the flowers that be

She leaves a trail of beauty no matter where she may go
They yearn to capture her beauty inside, embracing her love and hope
She dances upon the flowers gently; fluttering from place to place
She leads them all on her timeless journey embracing them along the way

Freedom calls her name once more, so she flutters again and then
We long to see her one more time, as she takes off in the wind
She's gone before she ever appeared as she happily glides through the skies
She's happy still, her life is a thrill, the flight of the butterfly...
