That exquisite sensation

So lost to ourselves

We are all searching

To capture that elusive feeling


It flits and flees,

The brightly coloured butterfly

Evading, always, your grasp

Perhapsā€¦ not for definiteā€¦ but perhaps

If we just sit still a little

It will alight upon us.

But, like the butterfly,

It will not stay.

And we are worse off,

Knowing how wonderful it can be
