My Mind Aflutter

I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. — Michelangelo 

I saw a butterfly,

wings just opening near

the lacy leaves,

but then I was plunged

deep underwater,

gliding through

the reefs behind

a graceful angelfish —

I thought only clouds

could morph so easily,

and then this brown-eyed,

wild violet hiding in a crush 

of velvet delighted me 

with its artful mimicry.
