The Butterfly Flutters By

The Butterfly Flutters By Butterfly flutters by and glorious time stands still life springs forth and joy leaps to overfill A beauty sent to bring heavenly and great delight like the glory of moon and stars on a clear night Flashes of vibrant rainbows pass into the magic scene pureness, life emerging in a passing so serene Pushing away all thoughts of trouble, pain and despair fluttering all about while landing here and there Winged eye pleasing music as butterfly flies so well raining colors that forever last without fail A pass, a solo and a double circle around my head soothing as a sweet dream resting in my old bed Butterfly flutters by , sun and flowers deeply sigh Nature's finest art floating in scenic sky Outshines their glory as it shows it's blessed gifts a flash of paradise proudly dancing that so uplifts Robert J.

I liked the thought of time standing still when we see a butterfly, and stare in awe as it flutters by. You really captured the joy of those serene moments, Robert! Congratulations on your win!

Hey, Robert. I'm never a fan of butterflies but the way you've written this makes me want to just relax in a field at twilight as I watch them waltz with the light breeze above me.
