Sunset and Alpen Glow over Jasper, Amber, Violet and Indigo, Jasper Sky Tram, Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada

Jasper Butterfly

Over Jasper
Where sunset meets the alpenglow
Amber mingles with the violet and indigo

Here am I
On the cusp of the sky
While far below
Rivers and life
In endless flow

Of even one small voice
In the tide of events

Like the butterfly
In Beijing
I flutter
Back down to the valley
Where I ride the flow
Singing
From the depth of my soul
