Gentle caress

The butterflies caressed

the frail old man

and soothed his sorrow

in the light flutter of

their dainty wings

his heavy heart

lost all its weight

and floated gently

to its resting place.

Crumbs Jon

I am sitting here writing and just stopped a while. I just read this and the images in my mind are so strong that tears are rolling down my cheeks.

This is beautiful my friend.
