Found on a Beach in Uruguay

As out of place as the dead butterfly
Found still but perfect on the white sand
Beach of Punta del Este, its fragile wings
Spread as if in perpetual flight, each
Unflawed vein and dotted sector mirrored
By its twin; the fragility and ephemeral
Nature as undeniable as poetry is to the
Scribe who wakes to pen verse in winter
