Storm Warning Cancelled

...a poem
and now the world is changed
'tis true
but, do not concern yourself

the flutter of a butterfly's wings
may induce a hurricane
half-way 'round the world

the butterfly is not
mindful of such
nor should the poet be

flutter your dance
and dance your flutter
to the next alluring flower

best speak no more of this

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Editing stage: 


and some good advice. but while one butterfly may make a hurricane the millions of others that day fluttered without any notice at all. the tempo seemed to change up from one S to the next, but i might be wrong. very thoughtful piece.
