Warrior

She fought the gorgeous storm
 
with all her delicate strength
 
Spent and tired, at last she fell
 
giving in to the mighty wind.
 
Though her wings were fragile yet strong
 
she waged the battle but had little chance
 
against the tempest that swirled all around
 
and hearing the plaintive call of death’s song
 
she plummeted to earth amidst the squall.
 
I found her the day after
 
lying in the grey sand
 
still life of beautiful death
 
with amber wings tattered
 
her butterfly soul moved on
 
she fought with such true courage
 
through the wild and glorious storm.
