Butterfly and Leaf - a poem

(what? You thought I only wrote software? Enjoy....)

Butterfly and Leaf

Moca Finca, August 9, 2008
Copyright 2008, Steven Feuerstein

Flickering shadow
of a butterfly
catching the sun
seeking out color:
Alive, for a time.

Fluttering shadow
of a leaf
losing the sun
losing the branch:
Dying, in separation.

My eyes
can't tell the difference.
Living or dying,
the shadow is the same.
It communicates,
it hides.

My eyes
move on,
seeking a shadow
I can trust.
