Free as a Butterfly

Zebra Longwings on Golden Dewdrop


Delicate zebra of breeze kissed wilds

You who seek to dine on rich pollen

And sip sweet nectar

Fly over me


When you  gather with your fellows

In moonlit gloaming

Would you pause a moment

To alight upon my fingertips


Tell me tales of passion flower birth

And emerald forests closeting treasure

Of aromas ambrosial

Share your secrets


What is it to skip unfettered

Under billows sailing vast cerulean skies

Or to dance between raindrops

Whisper to me of abandon


For to me it is a dream

Tasted of in moments like these

When I imagine to feel your heartbeat

In the instant before we part
