Fragile Thoughts - Poem by chantelle ribeiro

Fragile
Delicately designed
Iridescent work of art
by God's hand
I watch you flitter
a graceful dance
Your beautiful wings
A kaleidoscope of color
Awed by your beauty,
your fearless frolicking
in a big and dangerous world,
I am suddenly humbled
Ashamed of my childish fears
limiting my capacity to be as you, butterfly,
the freedom to be Me...
I smile as you rest on my hand,
staring back at me
asif you have understood every word
of my solliloque...
