I found a fallen butterfly
Upon the ground today
And held it in an open hand—
As gently as one may—
Examining the symmetry
Of its two broken wings.
Alas, so seem they, butterflies
Are such fine, fragile things.

Yellow is a fitting color for a butterfly.
This is a most beautiful moment.
Our hands are as one in embrace.
Our steps are together as though
We, with the same purpose and pace,
Were two happy dancers instead
Of lovers alone on a lane
Agreeing with those who have said:
A grace is a walk in the rain.

You have arrived on a bountiful island, somewhere in the seven seas of poetic literature, and are invited to share its distinctive waters and sands. Here the sun shines on a sweet natural abundance of inspirational, spiritual, and love poetry.
We all have ethereal wings, but few have the courage to use them.
After three decades, Pepper's writings have distinguished themselves with the unmistakable marks of elevation and style. As you read each word, you will grow to understand why they are considered timeless and universal in appeal.
Being in essence belles lettres, Blair's verses celebrate the more beautiful facets of life (love, inspiration, spirituality, nature). Each a gem, you will treasure them as you would cherished memories.
With each succeeding line, you will be drawn deeper into the soul of the poem. Perhaps you will find yourself in another time and place (whether in remembrance or future dreams) where peacefulness abides.
