Butterfly Kisses

Written by: Carole Cookie Arnold

Milkweed midst the marigolds grow wild Natures hand has kept this parcel undefiled As if a unseen hand created a haven for them Thousands of butterflies sparkle like gems Watching them flit in joyous harmony as they gleam I saw their flight was exquisitely pure and clean Walking among them barefoot through the field Thousands of butterfly kisses my presence did yield Frolic in their wings fearlessness in their hearts Became solely my blessing that will never depart Delicate colorful creatures who appear to be frail Strong as a large ship with wings for their sails I smiled as I walked away This is all I have to say If you have never been kissed Look for butterflies in your midst
