Glasswing Butterfly



Glasswing Butterfly


Opalescent wings shimmer gently in soft morning breeze,

fragile, sheer, alight with colors of sunshine and stars,


coruscating, she flies with quiet strength and grace,

her reflection lustrous, ephemeral — a kaleidoscopic,


changing prism of day and night,

ever-rising, blooming, fading


into the endless stretch of time.
