Subtle Butterflies (Day 545)

Two subtle butterflies
paper-white  wings 
fluttering  
rising   rising  
in a dance 
of helical delight
against a dappled world
of emerald green   
citrine  and golden
late-summer sunlight
bring to mind 
a wedding day   a cloudy 
bride in white 
and gray  sea of chairs  
billowing veil   and blue 
freesia bouquet
upward they twirl
circling  circling
wings alight   lighter than 
air  flowers and sky
and lace and leaves
they quickly disappeared
from view  lost 
in the blue  but I still 
see them there
