Le papilon noir

She spreads her wings

at the resurgence of the dawn

From the dark, she has emerged

to now bask in the colours of the light and

in the unpretentious beauty of the morn.


‘Le Papilon Noir’

The midnight veil she has traded

for les couleurs du jour

A paradise now resurrected


She has dreams now

to follow

And can shed the emotions

of the night creatures

that she had been previously compelled

to borrow


Free and unhampered

she flutters among the rainbow kaleidoscope

found in the transparent light

Unafraid and welcoming the day

becoming a memory

and no longer a captive

to the darkness of the night
