The Company of Butterflies

 

In the company of butterflies

I can whistle up the wind

and fly

without boundaries.

Flutter by

and then rest

in the sunshine

and drink

sweet nectar

and dream

and dream.

 

In the company of butterflies

I can whistle up the wind

and soar

over fragile rainbows.

Then stop

in a fusion

of colour

to taste the gold

at the end

of my flight

of fancy.

 

In the company of butterflies

I am boundless.
