"a life lived"

in a short period of time

an unusual
burst of butterflies
migrating north

painted ladies
flying
towards resettlement

using sky as path
sunlight as compass

along the way
sipping
nectar from buds

along the way
pollenating
flowers to produce new seeds

along the way
organically producing
food for mass consumption - 
benefitting humans and animals alike

along the way
alerting
the health of an entire ecosystem

along the way
vividly painting
the world more colorfully

a delicate creature
with a delicate lifespan - 
maybe, a few days
a few weeks
a few months
no more than a year, maybe

with moments of dormancy
but never sleep
achieving so much
in such little 
time
not wasted
