Butterfly Dance

While in Georgia with the Pilot's family, we went to the Butterfly Pavilion in the Callaway Gardens, which is where the pictures– and the thoughts behind this post– come from. 

Faerie flash radiance
      And the colors bolt
The wings are touched with rainbow and I feel them flutter close
This is how to see Creation enfolded in flaming fancy
Whose finger fashioned feathers wispy as these?

Camera clicks, but dull technology cannot keep up;
The dance defies capture, feeble attempts by amateur hand
The best way is to stand, breathless
Breathe beauty winging round the face
Fantasize: will they light on an outstretched hand?

Does the dance make music?
The colors sing praise of the Painter
Butterfly dance into the Glory
God's kiss in the rainbow wings.
