A shadow of a SunWhile I sit under a tree
Reading a classic mystery,
She is musically breaking hearts
With Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
While I recline 'neath an exhaulted citadel
Painting the beauty of a Morning Glory's petal,
She attends the summer Olympics
Winning metal after metal.
While I am out walking
Studying the movements of people and their talking,
She is climbing the most stunning mountains
With her parents proudly gawking.
While I sing a song of six pence
Recounting pockets full of rye and little cents,

I was so thirsty
and reaching for cups that should have been there.
Instead I found a billboard of butterflies,
the colors raging
more than any rainbow
I'd ever seen.
Their wings fluttered and flashed
yet somehow they moved in slow motion.
I wanted to stand,
wanted to reach out and touch them but…
I couldn't move,
and yet I laughed
ignoring my dry mouth
and the tingling in my feet.
There was a tempest
on the rise
and in my blood.
