A Butterfly Dies


Author's Note: In memory of my friends Chelle and Heidi, one taken untimely from this world, the other who chose to leave us too soon.


a light is gone
from the world
a star descends
into oblivion
a butterfly dies
in its cocoon
a rose wilts
before it buds
a candle is out
before it glowed
a swimming dolphin
sinks in the sea
a fairy dissipates
before it flies
the acorn drops
its color green
a song of life
fades away
the rainbow is fog
the wind blows backwards
the sun is black
the ocean freezes
the stars are novas
the moon wanes
and a butterfly dies
before it emerges.
