BUTTERFLY PAUSE FOR CONTEMPLATION
A butterfly skips through my backyard,
The overgrown grass is a result of rainy days,
The butterfly greets, flower after flower;
A pause for contemplation;
On he who dares and fulfill a life's dream;
In the light of morning and the damp of dew.
Things seem to be clear as the certainty
Of a day, already ongoing,
Ah yes. some things are for sure
A result of that certainty;
Take for example a young boxer,
Beautiful, and light on his flying feet,
With the sting of a thousand bees in his fists;
Floats out of his garden awhile in contemplation;
And then the end comes, he had to leave us.
