Of Love and Butterflies

and it fell..
an amalgam of
bright hues,
right into my lap.
fuschias, magentas,
saffrons, aquamarines…
like jewels of every kind,
sparkling, dazzling,
brightening my very life.

and it encompassed…
warm, warmer,hot!
scalding my being,
suffusing me with
the need for more.
yes, more! i need more
of this love
for life, for hope,
for a new tomorrow.

i need more
to bring me aloft
to a euphoria
that eluded as it dived
out of grasp.
but, has landed
in my lap.
