Butterflies and Lavender

Butterflies and Lavender


Butterflies and lavender,

Midsummer dreams,

Expectations of wonders

In buzzing of bees…

Future is secret, Past is revealed,

Present is here, Present's a gift.

My soul's getting softer

Under the Sun.

Enjoying the silence

I’m feeling calm.

Peace like a river

Flows into my heart,

Over the flowers

Floats fragrance of love.

Future is hidden, Past has gone by,

Present is here, Present is now.
