Grace and Beauty

Butterflies symbolize grace and beauty as the soul travels from one state to the next.

I slip bare feet in cool wet lawn, retrieve
zephyr zucchini, basil and fat peas
inspired breakfast frittata to please
her palate with this songbird cantata.

Do I sound glib? Conditions are dicey
and all these medical tests so pricy.
Six in a day: two MRIs, x-ray,
CT, at least two ultrasonic waves

before they order palliative care
release her to sit by the lake’s prayer
where spirit messengers flit and alight
sip nectar from these blooms and heart delight.

Inspired by: Glib, Frittata, Six and Dicey.
