Please … Just For One Day

Butterfly fluttering
Impossible to hear
the delicate beauty
of the moment

But senses are touched
by the gentleness
of the vision

The imagination captured
and carried away
on those wings

Scattered thoughts
up in the air
bouncing from one flower
to another

Stopping but for a moment
before moving on
How freeing to not linger!

No time given to dwell
on tasks that bind us to reality
Released from duties
and obligations
weighing heavily

Oh please,
just for one day,
let me be a butterfly

Wake

Wake

Wishes that would
awaken a silent heart
Buoyancy of hopes
and dreams
once safely tethered
are now washed away
in your wake
Left vulnerable
and unsafe
Treading water
in the changing
climate of choppy seas
once hot with passion
Now chillingly cold 
as I am left
searching
once more for
an emotional life raft
