barefoot and wearing my butterfly dress
i spin through the maelstrom of memory
pillow thoughts and peppermints
i squint through the camera lens
seeing only you
your fire melting my ice
ahhhh....reflection
certainly not perfection
nothing added or subtracted
but joy multiplied through the years
magical and yet factual
that was you
tame and wild
and, well....like Goldilocks knew
just right

And those Bears couldn't help but forgive her for her trespasses...
"you can't start a fire without a spark"
Goldilocks was that spark...as was her lover...
and then there was fire.

ah, What a romantic piece this is...great start to my day...thank you, Lydi.

In my opinion, the first line is so clever to begin your poem with, I saw the connection between nature and free spirit in “barefoot” and “butterfly” and in the second line the butterfly effect of memory to result in that spin of a magical journey of life and how it was genuine and pure without adding filters and faked smiles. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem.

You are welcome.
Beautifully conveyed, Lydia.
I was watching a romantic scene reading your poem.
I was really lost in imagination. It's amazing.

A butterfly dress. If that is a metaphor it is brilliant!
So brilliant. I can't think of anything better to be dressed in.
I love this, nice feels.
