Blue Butterfly

First Light

In the beginning the night sky was void of all light.
When people looked up all they saw was darkness.

Then one dark night someone looked up...
and saw a bright shining star.
Then another and another.
Others too...
began to see them.

There were many reasons...
as to why this came to be - this is mine:

"I'm not quite sure, it may have been a man...
or it may have been a woman.
But this much I do know,
in a moment of tenderness...
one of them had put their arm around the other."

With that first caring and kind gesture that first star began to shine.
