The Tree And The Butterfly - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

what i love to see in you
is when you become a huge tree
rooted upon a
muted grass hill

above you is a black cloud
making rain

your leaves are all wet
and your roots are drinking so much water

your bark is thick and your
trunk so hard and strong

and she is there the frail butterfly
clinging softly

beneath the big leaf
fragile and steady

what i love next is when the rain stops
and then the butterfly leaves you

helpless and sad and so poetic.
