mariposa de ryelena
a poem for ryan, joel and santa elena, costa rica
(c) 2011 by margaux delotte-bennett

there is something about butterflies
that gives one pause
as if each flutter of wings
is just short of

our spirit follows the curly cue path
from petal to petal
up wind and down
as we stand
with bated breath
still with wonder.

how can something so delicate
in and out of sight
and command
our undivided attention
before once again
taking flight…?
