Butterfly wings

By
More by this author
Butterflies wings flap in the wind,
They flap right by me.
They make me wonder,
How something so little,
Can make a difference so big.

They are so beautiful,
They always make me think,
How thus horrible world can produce something so wonderful,
For everyone like you and me.

SO many colors on their bodies,
Gazing at all their beauty,
Seeing all the things in the world.
They make me feel so worthy.

Everyday when I walk by,
I see the butterflies in the park,
The beautiful sight,
Makes me dread the dark.

Very cool poem. I always consider myself blessed whenever I see a butterfly because they truly are delicate. And you are right- it seems unreal that something so beautiful can exist in a world full of darkness. I would appreciate you comments on my work.
