The shadow of the invisible tormentor
Uneasily looms over,
While the scorching sun paints the land dry.
Unfettered the movements of a monarch butterfly
As it flits from flower to flower
Indulging in its share of nectar
Blazing a trail of pollen and promise…
Oblivious to the chaotic amiss
Gripping the human space,
It flies free at its own leisurely pace.
