The butterfly

High against a bright blue sky,

In the top of the sweet gum tree.

Flitted and fluttered with fervent purpose.

I watched a yellow sulphur butterfly,

against cloudless sky,

Dancing with its namesake.


Change transforms us.

Do not be scared,

Even if you have been only successful at failure.

Fluttering and flitting is still flying.

Do so with your fervent purpose.
