Summer Afternoons

White aglitter with lavender shades
one small and yet significant
beauty of a  butterfly
takes flight
drifting on the velvet of a breeze
on a simply splendid afternoon
of mother nature's making

The sun is warmth in all its glory
as this tiny creature tells it story
there, within the beauty of its flight
that dances now, from flower to flower
to wile away the day and hour
in the magic of the art that it creates
within this realm that is as light as air

It settles for a moment then
upon the golden center of a flower
open too, to light and warmth
in endless hours of life's continuance
while it simply comes to be
and nothing more

So simple, this
the endless bliss
of summer afternoons . . .
