Fragile Mortality


With silent butterfly wings
time takes flight across the universe
stealing moments from life
to fill its eternal collection plate
with fragile mortality.

Wowzers! A metaphor that gives one pause - the eternal collection plate filled with fragile mortality. (Feeling all too close to me, these days!) Great write, Susie!
