Butterflies - Poem by Nina gáspari

I remember taking a long walk
the wet grass touching the sole of my feet
careless and free
I can´t remember when or how
But the grass was greener and the sky seemed closer to me
I could almost touch it with my delicate fingertips
What was once silent, changed
And now I could hear a subtle invitation
To a journey with no certain destination
The flirtatious wind blowing my dress
And gently caressing my hair
The flying birds seemed to desired to be my guides
To a place I would finally be able to put my mind at ease
To a place you can be as cool as you please
i knew nothing in life comes for free
anxious yet apprehensive about what could it be
the high trees showed me nothing but shades
the red, pink so colorful flowers
lost their pigments and I was already trapped
couldn´t see a way to escape
the beautiful sun light gave the thunderstorm a chance
to embrace the sky, and steal its lights
the storm took me by surprise and I was flying around
once again trapped, lost, but I didn´t want to be found
the birds flew away, the flowers died
when it all seemed gone to me
the butterflies of changes flew above my head
their colors brought happiness my way
and I smiled the pain away
I woke up, the sun was up and shining
It was all a dream
Funny thing is
The butterflies are still here
And the smile on my face
Refuses to disappear.
