so delicate
its wings
fluttering fast
in the wind
roaming through air
changing elevation
vectors of direction
submerged plentifully by
fragrant vegetation
worldly matters
people cherish
are no concern
for it interacts amongst
nectar in flowers
refreshing rain water
leaves for shelter
twigs, branches
resting heavily
hardly notice
the light touch
tangent only as
tiny butterfly feet
embrace their soon
inefficiency during flight
when the delicate
butterfly flies
