Reach, Fly

litten paw zebra butterfly

yes, sometimes life really looks like a hallmark card!

the kitten leaping,

the butterfly fluttering.

How idyllic – how cute!


unless you are the butterfly,

or the kitten.


i leap.  i miss. i fall and kiss the ground.

(who always catches me, even if not always gently.)


Some may say you flutter about, never lighting on any thing for long —

but never forget you are flying!

You are the kitten, and You are the butterfly….

and All the mystery in-between.
