And the butterfly
flies with folly
on fragile wings

a million flaps
earth and sky
to light
to carry
troubled things.

    Beautiful – both: image and words!
    As far as I know I belong to the butterfly clan in the Lakota tradition.
    Coincidentally, I am just about to follow the example of your butterfly and letting go of all the “troubled things”. I have been a caterpillar long enough. 😉
    Much love,
