More real than solid earth;
And to these death does not mean decay,
But only another birth"

Butterfly garden
so rich in vivid enjoyment
I gaze at the wings

I really love the scene you've painted with your words, Liv :) When I read this poem, I think of a little girl laughing as she's gazing at the wings of thousands of butterflies fluttering around her. And I especially love the word "vivid," it's one of my favorite adjectives!! :D
