On Butterfly Wings

On clear bright days I catch a glimpse
Of what is a rare and beautiful sight.
Endangered, once feared to be lost to time
A gem to the butterfly world.
The Monarch making a brave return
Bringing to me a smile on beating wings.
Timeless beauty wrapped in a silk cocoon
Free to flutter where the wind goes.
Dancing on air without missing a beat
Enchanted by your beating heart.
Knowing I have seen rare beauty.
On more than one occasion you have come,
Like the rainbow that comes by.
Peeking through the clouds, around corners.
Reminding me on several occasions,
To follow inspiration, to keep chasing rainbows.
To fly on butterfly wings.

For P.D., who constantly inspires...
Contest 'any old butterfly poem...

    * “I Agree With Beautiful Linda-Marie * Your Lovely Precious Heart Captures The Essence of Dreams I Might Say * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Shannon * Pointing Unto Somethings Not Only Beautiful, Yet * Alive Within The Colours of Purity, Hope & Love * I Am Standing Amid Such A Scenary Inspiring As We Speak * Considered Writing About It But Perhaps I Shall Just Visit Today * Creation Can Cause Ones Heart to Burst * Should They Grasp It Amid Its Very Roots & Peer Into Its Deepest Cores * Your Beauty * I May Sincerely Say * Would Be As A Brilliant Jewel Placed Lovingly Atop Its Majestic Crown * My Luv, Always, Sarah.” *
