Butterfly Hands

Butterfly Hands, Margaret Mair, Original art

Butterfly Hands, Margaret Mair, Original art

 
A young girl’s
Butterfly hands,
Set free in
The enclosing darkness,
Dance expressively
Before the glow
Of the lamplight
Creating shadows
Against the fading wall,
Shadows enfolding
Rose-colored dreams
And midnight-blue secrets
Born in her heart.
Linked, become
Wonder-full wings
Taking colorful flight
As they lift her wishes
High into
The magic night
Where their light
Can flicker
And dance
Among the stars
She wishes on.
