In Search Of

A butterfly
flutters on a breeze
into my garden

Delicate wings
propel her toward
the overflowing
pink petunias below

Entranced, she circles
the beckoning petals,
buoyed by their promise
of nectar and rest

Black opal wings
like sails on a lake
fill suddenly with
the whimsy of wind

Aloft again, yet undeterred
the breeze traveler
ascends beyond
the garden in search
of another soft landing.
