Fly Higher

Flutterby: Chasing Butterflies | Butterfly, Thich nhat hanh, Brain injury
Though winged, you left your freedom to rest on my fingers,

A respite so brief,

I felt your softness linger and loved your touch,

You made me feel the fragility of your life, your flight, your resting place at that moment,


You will fly away in a few short moments,

Though you leave a lasting impression, an endearment,

Upon my lips,

that whisper,

Fly away little butterfly, Fly higher,

Keep those wings of flight so gentile,


Never succumb to the harshness of nature,

Never inhibit your flight of ascent,

For I have waited in vain for those wings that crown you,

As I let you go, I feel crushed and defeated.
