You are a splash of
color on a flower,
swaying on a long-stemmed
bloom as it
receives the
sky's refreshing breath.
You flutter
and leap with
the zephyr-
a dancer that never tires.
Floating life.
Rich orange and
night-sky combined to make wings.
A whirling gypsy,
you bring with you
a fresh, hopeful breeze.
You are soft and sweet smelling from
promenades with blossoms and
cleansing dew.
You carry the essence
of nature, making yourself one
of the flowers.
You are a lavish reminder of life.

The author's comments:
I hope that from this ode, people will look at the small pleasures in life and find that they are continual no matter what is going on and that they will see them as the hope of new life.
