as I walked

along the path

as the sun began to set yesterday

I saw a butterfly

on the ground

slowly beginning to fade away

there was a stillness

of the wings

and a few slow openings

of the wings

and a strange withdrawal

as the. butterfly

went slowly within

to a different place

not to the sky

but back to the earth again

and I watched

in dismay

and sighed

and said a prayer of goodbye

for the beauty

of a butterfly

with no more flitting

no more flight

just this shared moment

a strange shared time

and I walked on

and wondered why

what was the significance

of this strange goodbye

of a beautiful butterfly
