Butterfly Transformation

Poem By Eila Mahima Jaipaul

I saw you in the clouds today
you were a white
over my gray
like a butterfly wing poised
longing had threatened to overtake me
and your sight appeased
saving me, yet again
I wanted to touch you
the color of pure
but I was afraid my ink hands
would mar your beauty
so I watched instead
this butterfly, this bird
a heart, a soul
transformed from me to you
