Butterfly

Broken wing
flapping in the hazy breeze
body buried in the sand

Furiously fighting
struggling for life
uncovered

Too heavy
too tired
to fly

Wing bent precariously
it jumps
flutters to the ground

futile?

My front porch

Sunlight fading into shadows on my front porch
dancing shadows
overlooking a sweeping arm
eroding
reaching out to embrace
a milleneum of raindrops
another 24 hours
blown away
in the wind
of another day's
choices
hopes
losses
