35 Days: 27 April - Poem #15 Purple

She watches the butterflies

dance for her:

red and gold,

white and black

and suddenly she spies

a momentary purple,

a single strand

of a different thread

pulled through time.

It circles her head

and settles on her hand

and slowly the colour

bleeds from it

and into her,

spreading like a stain

into her fingers

into her hand and arm.

It stretches tight

across her skin

and then beyond,

into the air.

The grass and trees,

the earth and sky

adopt its hue.

And the butterfly,

as white as a snowflake,

lifts and drifts away.
