In the Garden of the gods

Have you ever seen

a butterfly free fall?

weightless

white

petal wings.

Have you ever seen

a garden dove

preen?

or caught the glint

in the eye

of a sparrow?

Have you ever seen

a butterfly free fall?

thrilled

by its own

wings?

One hot endless afternoon

squatting with an armload of sun-dried laundry

I watched a butterfly free fall.

 I felt the pulse of pleasure

of

Creation.
