    Nature's Jewel

    Dusty wings

    Orange and black

    A fluttering sound

    Wisps by my ears


    The inescapable joy

    At the site of this treasure

    Floating in the air

    Gracefully landing on every leaf


    Every flower

    A splash of color

    Sitting on a leaf

    This is no flower


    It is the creature of my dreams

    Nature’s most precious jewel

    More graceful than a ballerina

    Lighter than a feather


    Brighter than the sun

    Silent as the wind

    Its beauty remains

    The loveliest sight to the eye


    As I sit here watching

    This beautiful butterfly

    I think it is one of a kind

    Although millions surround me

    I am enchanted by this poem. My mother passed away three years ago and since my family has Native American Indian heritage I dedicated the butterfly to my mother as her totem and now every time I see a butterfly I say "hello mom" (butterflies are like angels)! I will save this as one of my favorites - which is a select few. Thank you.



    oh thank you so much. I'm so glad to hear you like my poem! I am sorry for your loss. And i agree with you--butterflies ARE like angels! Thank you.

    Poetry is what gets lost in translation.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
