Chasing Butterflies

You crossed my path

and I followed you.


I watched you flutter

quickly through the sky

and stand gently on a flower.


Wings slowed to a heartbeat

as you rested for a moment.


When I reached to touch you,

you jumped and moved 

through the air again.


Such an elusive creature.


I couldn't catch you

because I wasn't meant to.
