Butterfly Feather

Feathers from
Butterfly wings
I need them
Lining pockets from
The cold
With every brush
They fly away
South I’m told
Trees full
Of butterfly gold
Undulations of wings
Miniscule feathers
Falling like
Dancing lanterns
Released to sky
Lit by candles
Dancing among stars
Delicate dance from
Flower to leaf
Leaf to tree
North to south
To stars above
Whisper once
And all is broken
Feathers fly away
Ephemeral life
Of butterfly gold
Making journeys
To the south
To the stars
Fly away
Butterfly feather
