Flowers and Butterflies by Florian KleinefennAs she walks out into the sun
Her eyes following the fountain
Water shimmering in the brilliant glaze
Like blue green sapphires rising in the spray

She walks further into the light
A small flutter of colour catches her eye
She holds her breath watching the summer sky
As the sun catches the brilliant colours of a butterfly

There is another one flitting round the yellow flower
Followed blithely by several more, looking spectacular
She has never seen so many butterflies in her life
And she knows it is time to acknowledge the sign

The dark clouds are lifting finally
As life reawakens to a lilting melody
A dark and painful past is ending
And she breathlessly awaits a new beginning
