Love Is a Butterfly – Butterfly Poem
Love is a butterfly nestling on your toe,
and you see how the veins within its wings
branch perfume into the sky across
the earth's breasts and bones.
Never once does it falter in its fluttering,
never once does it bend a straw or pinch an eyelash.
quite out of the blue,
the butterfly roars like a lion or
in a whisp of a whistle
all the while
like a meadow of a million flowers and a trillion cherry blossoms.
Now and then,
the butterfly whispers
songs of honey and clear springs
until the glistening pearls in its wake
make a trail for the frail,
its legs settling,
its spiracles blending blades and shades
for a miracle.
