Dragonfly, Butterfly, Bee

My lover's a dragonfly, butterfly, bee
When I walked outside just now, I saw all three
So flirty and floaty and flying so free
I wonder if that means that he's here with me
His wings are transparent and mine so pretty
Such similar soulmates of different species
If we can forgive the sharp sting of this bee
Learn all of our life lessons congruently 
Shed his exoskeleton and my silk strings
Evolve into beautiful, colorful beings
This butterfly perched behind his bamboo screen
This dragonfly staring at me in my dreams
Perhaps we are closer to it than it seems
Emerging from ether and reuniting
