Texan Butterfly

Texan Butterfly
(© Priscilla Celina Suarez)

I am like a Texan butterfly
as I gleam in the light
of a sparkling sunshine.

My arms raised
in the pose of flying wings
as I let my imagination
flower with the thoughts
of soaring.

Into the skies
of a warm summer day,
I will land on sweet cactus
and sway every way.

I will linger
on bluebonnet blooms,
dance on amadillo backs,
but most important of all,
I will dream of
flying high.
