Overtaken
By Don Iannone
Can you fathom
the beauty of spring
and where it carries you,
when you allow it
to overtake you
like a herd of wild butterflies
that gently pummel you into submission,
coaxing the newborn inside you
and forever tickling your imagination
until tears of joy stream down your cheeks
and you allow yourself
to plop down in a bed of cool clover
and watch wistful clouds coast
across the cornflower blue sky?
I can fathom it
and hope you allow yourself
to do just the same.
