Driving home under purple skies
Magic enough you’d think
Until I look at my side mirror
The moons reflection didn’t match
The black reversed moon worried me
Is it a sign of things to come?
Does it whisper of strange days ahead?
Could it be dark fortune
Waiting to gather its own?
I wondered how this portent would affect me…

I have suffered with that fluttering feeling
for most of my life
When I was younger,
I believed it heralded good news
Most of the time it did.
Now, it’s happening more often
I put it down to old age
Getting nervous about things
Finally, I went to the doctor
He suggested an x-ray
Now I have a wonderful picture on my wall
Of the fluttery feeling inside my body
beautiful, crystal clear butterflies
telling me everything is all right…
