The Flight of the Butterfly for John

Floating in the air
Wavering in the breeze
Butterflies,
land with ease
(in my stomach as I read)....

Such passion,
such beauty
In the summer air
It's all around me
(when you are near ~so on I read)....

distinguishing you
and oh, my heart skips
to the tune
so much different
(with admiration I find
the butterflies.... the beauty) deep inside.....

Velvet, satin,
plain or platinum
Touching the degree
in which you speak to me
(where once upon I time,.... were butterflies).....

Yet I am still a worm,
trying so hard to be
beautiful in your sight
I crawl so willingly
(Yet beauty in distinction)

Free and falling

from the midnight air

into the great unknown

of the atmosphere ~
        the flight (metamorphosis) of the butterfly ~

Note: Thanks John, :)                 March 29th 2011

    Humanly Speaking, I Myself Are Not Even A Worm. But Oh When We Dream So Much More *.* Its Always Been That Way For The Most; Humanly Speaking ? Better, For Merely Myself! That Life Could Have Shown These Eyes Something Else: Twasnt Meant To Be....But I Like Your Poem, Yet, Judgment Begins Amid This Child's Own Reflection: This Mr. Hyde ¿ There Seem To Be Countless Reasons Why We Exist These Ways We Do....What Better Verse Can Be If Not From One's Heart....Love, Jeremy *
