    -------------------------------------------


    A gentle sweep of beauty,
    Perfection in flaws.
    Everywhere, but
    Unnoticed, unseen.
    Graceful in life and death?
    Silent; craving
    One more breath.

    A shout of color,
    Bold and bright,
    Crowing a joyous life
    Of slow scuicide.
    But...
    Dimmer colors, too.
    Hidden,
    Behind the brightest shades,
    Nothing, self-proclamed
    But a Monarch, in truth.


    Millions, thousands,
    Unique, yet all the same.
    Classified, catogorized,
    Folded up
    Like neat little notes
    Passed between high school lovers.
    Put into a tidy little box
    We lable 'I understand.'

    Flitting from one thing to another,
    Trying only to survive?
    Or to understand how to live?
    A splash of lively color,
    There and gone,
    Dead in a split second,
    But lasting, it seems,
    For eternity.
    So small, so fragile.
    So easily destroyed.

    How much do we have in common
    With the common butterfly?

      I think you did a great job of improving this with your revisions.... the last two lines... I'm not sure, maybe a little unsurprising not quite as evocative?

    I liked the sparing use of the question-mark, when you did use them it seemed like that coincided with high points, and it's a fantastic thing when you can take a piece away and bring it back stronger. That's what i feel you've done here.
