Nature's Lesson 101
I saw a butterfly, flutter by
in no particular hurry.
Taking its time, I don't know why,
without a care or worry.
Landing on each petal to take a taste,
this I know to be true;
Seemingly slow and without haste,
but from flower to flower it flew.
As peaceful as the day went by,
I couldn't help but feel sad.
Inevitably a short life for this butterfly,
without too many days to be had.
And yet, this moment in time I see,
no matter how short and eluding;
Reminds me to rejoice and be happy
while nature is exuding.
I hope you all are appreciating the beautiful Spring that is unfolding. Take time to be with the people you love, but moreover, notice the strangers that come into your life. We're all in this together and really, like the butterfly, we're only here for a short time. Live, love, and laugh!
