Poem for the Day - Butterfly Movement by R. S. Thomas

Poemfor the Day

Butterfly movement
as though a rainbow
had taken wing, falling
with the softness of light

on our horizon, a reminder
of God’s promise to lay
aside wrath. And what,
this moment at gaze

in the afternoon sun,
we ask, was the nature 
of our sin that it deserved
so beautifully to be forgiven?

Butterfly Movement
