You are more than you'll ever know
And your love teaches me to grow
You are more than my everything
And your love gives me wings
Like a butterfly
And I'll dance in the sunlight
Like a butterfly
From the day into the night

Kylie Minogue

This says it all (nature and beauty; softness, color, light and life), in but a short space. I love the way that you can take a form and make it speak to us. Would love to see you try some sonnets and other forms. -- Jeff
