Fluttering freely,
I see the green butterfly—
sashaying like a swan across a pond.
Streaks of green show jaunts of the Birdwing Butterfly.

Listening closely,
I hear the green butterfly—
whispering softly like a blade of grass in the wind.

Dancing delicately,
I feel the green butterfly—
landing on my wrist like a feather in the wind.

Inhaling freshly,
I smell the green butterfly—
saturating the air like a spritz of perfume.

Tasting sweetly,
He swallows both his and my stories—
comparing our journeys and lessons learned.
Streaks of green show the jaunts of the Birdwing Butterfly and me.
