butterfly dreams

     – george l stein


for you and i, there will be a time

in full of sun and gentle wind

for there is a place for you and i

where, floating as clouds and spirits do

butterflies on a summer breeze

thoughts and dreams and playful ease

we transcend this skin and dance

only stars and insight and fireflies

colors flutter and vanish in moonless trance

shed past and present, disappear

all the crystal days we knew

when we were young and two was one

how you, a sight, in shadow and in sun

of a chiaroscuro resplendency

at last ascending, weightless and free,

all we ever wanted and wished

through all the stones and bricks we found

all the holes we trampled through

and the pain and tears we shared

somewhere just past this last intransigence

before the first of autumn breeze

was to transcend , fleeting

for there is such a place

and there was such a time

inevitable that, as summer does,

dreams end
