fleeting insight

image via wikicommons

 insight is trembling dew
(a tenuous teardrop)
lingers on the stem
until sunbeams
turn it to vapor

insight is pain
scuffed knee warning you
(louder than your parents ever could)
that sliding down the stairs
on a trashcan lid was a bad idea

insight is the butterfly
that alights upon your
shoulder to reveal
th(idden)e marrow of your thoughts

but if you try to fasten your fingers round it
insight flees, frighted.
