Words like butterflies

They came to me while I slept
The darkness lit from motion
Words come like a hundred butterflies
Flitting here and there
Teasing
Lightly touching down
Remembered
Then lifting off into air
Forgotten in wonder
Of the translucent wings
Moving
Flying.
I reached out a hand
Please land
Please stay
Needing to capture just one sentence
One phrase as I knew they meant
So much more
Than a passing thought
So much more
Than to be left behind
Forgotten.
Beautiful blue wings
Back and forth slowly
Moving the air
Like the whisper
Parting like a smile
Amazing
Then faster to lift
To move into the light
To be the a part
Of itself.

  1. Thank you Benjamin, sometimes the words sit on the edge of your mind, get tired of waiting for me to pick up the pen and jump to oblivion on the page subconsciously. It’s always a good thing☺️
