Butterfly...


I once came upon a beautiful butterfly...

Her delicate iridescent wings captured the golden rays of the sun...
And reflected them into the dark corners of my desirous heart...
Lured in by her delicate and fragile vulnerability. I was truly at a loss...
To reach out suddenly. I would surely lose her as she fled into the wind's merciless and tumultuous persistence...
To give chase. In desperation. I would surely lose her forever...
Destroying the very reason I exist.
So against every instinct in my being...
I quieted my breath and heart...
And in the stillness of my soul...
I captured the essence of her hopes and dreams...
And held onto them with all my strength...
Burying them so deep within...
So deep. They became a part of me.
And slowly extending my open hand...
I placed it in front of her...
And let go of every worldly desire...
Except one...
And I closed my eyes...
And as I felt her tiny soft touch...
As she climbed in...
And gently held onto my hand...
I knew she was mine...
The beautiful golden butterfly of my dreams...
She was mine...
