Of Butterflies

Butterfly wings a-flutter upon the current of life Carried to fields of milkweed feasts Colors blending amongst the flowers Beauty dies to metamorphous (Truth endures the time) Cocoon-wrapped fragility Births forth the new generation The cycle of hope remains intact And I stand in awe of such mystery
