Butterfly Thoughts

September 13, 2009
Butterfly thoughts
Like fairytale songs
Flutter about
Over dreams, right and wrong
Ever so light
Ever so free
They whisper through minds
Too evasive to see
Butterfly thoughts
Like silver bell laughter
Light, tinkling mystery
Leaving glitter-dark after
Colorful kites
Too quick to grasp tight
Fragile and shining
Drifting shapes on sunlight
Butterfly thoughts
Like crystal-tint rain
Dripping like diamonds
On our minds’ window panes
Beautiful, silent
Lovely and true
The only connection
Between me and you
