Like silver butterflies...

They shine like silver butterflies 
Drifting in the sun, 
As though they fly on crystal wings 
That winter cold has spun. 
They catch and hold each soft sunbeam 
And then, without a sound, 
Turn into sparkling gossamer 
Before they touch the ground. 

~ Sandra Liatsos 

We have some "silver butterflies" drifting down here today.  I like the different images that Liatsos describes, especially "sparkling gossamer".
