Butterfly Dreaming

" I dreamt, I was a butterfly, or was I a butterfly dreaming..."

Lit wings
Reflected,
Captivating.
Awed, I reach out to her, 
Sighing.

Graceful,
Silently
Fascinating.
Diamond drops cascade down.
Tears.

Ever 
Enchanting,
Pale shimmering.
Somehow she cannot see
Her wings.

Joyful,
Entrancing,
I lift her chin.
"With such wings, you can fly!"
I try.

Glowing,
Delightful,
She wipes her tears.
Downcast wings start to
flutter.

Smiling,
Suddenly
Remembering.
Enrapturing in her
Found Wings.
