What Butterflies See

The Pink Lady Butterfly

lives up to 12 months


in this third month of the new year

all she has seen 


winks and blinks

specks and atoms

glistening in unison

searching for life. 

An expert in survival 

the butterfly knows 

that the pulsation upon the earth

is partly in hope

partly in fright.


She has winged through

drifted under 


sailed above

ominous clouds

long enough to say, 


She will be looking for somewhere to land 
when the shadows pass. 
Will you be there
standing tall
when she comes?
