Encounter with a Butterfly

Gentleness incarnate
in wings of orange and black
Beauty in its flight, innate
the summer breeze its only track

through time and space, no limits known
will stop this gentle spirit grown
that earned its wings to take to flight
yet now within the bright sunlight

it opens up its wings to me
allowing me to touch, to be
at one with the eternal urge
to love and trust and merge

with all that is of worth
and quality upon the earth
that lies within the innocence
of courage mixed with gentleness

because one tiny creature dared
to take the time to care...
