To A Butterfly

To A Butterfly short poem

Photo by joymichelle

You raise your wings like an angelic insect,
sent with a goodwill message to deliver.
Hovering around flowers gay with a gentle touch,
and the kiss of life of a kindhearted fairy.
You are truly blameless of anything scary,
bringing more life to nature without defect,
generously giving without desiring much
in return unlike many a human deceiver.
