While Butterflies Dance

I wrote While Butterflies Dance after observing butterflies while walking in the park on a summer day. Butterflies are beautiful and although they do not have a long life span they make every moment count. Their carefree dance was a joy for me to behold and the inspiration for the first poem. I first saw the butterflies in a shadowed area of the park and as I walked on I came across park steps that were also in the shadows and the inspiration for my second poem.

While Butterflies Dance

flutter to and fro
beauty
in design
defined
not knowing
nor caring
of time
as worries
dissolve into air
flutter
to and fro
and sing
today -
while
butterflies dance.

In the Shadows

In the shadows
darkness abounds
thoughts of scary things
lurking around

In the shadows
harsher light
sees age creeping in
on youthful skin

uncertainty

In the shadows
uncertainty
in what the future
may bring

In the shadows
possibility,
hopes,
and dreams

In the shadows
a path
dimly lit
can be seen

In the shadows
stairs
to guide you
if you dare......

On that particular day I couldn't believe how lucky I was to come across so many butterflies at one time!
