A poem about butterflies in flight
Butterflies of orange and yellow
Flying, flaming through the skies
Burning up the flowers
Circling in their dance of fire

I scurry towards them
And then stop. Dead
In my tracks so I don’t alarm them
In their furious flight of colors

One graciously lands on me
I am perfectly still
Afraid I might burn up too
And it lights up the sky once more
