Ode to Butterflies

The cocoon
Slowly
Breaks
Freeing
The butterfly.
Perplexed
By the world,
It flies
Away
Searching,
Begging
To understand,
To comprehend
The world it entered.
It leaves the world
Of darkness
Becoming
A member
In the world
Of endless light.
Its wings flutter
Rhythmically
As the sun
Reflects
A rainbow
Of colors.
Feasting on nectar
It flutters from flower to flower
Devouring the nectar
Like a child
With dessert.
The prairie
Is a stage.
The butterfly
A confident performer.
It prances
Like a dancer
Ready for show time
From the peach of dawn
To the grape of night
It flutters.
Whoosh.
It travels
With the wind.
Endlessly.
