Between bud and decay

Each has its place
and role to play in time;
this intersection rare,
when flower's bloom
and butterfly
happen to meet, and match:
yesterday would still
have been too soon,
tomorrow possibly too late
and yet we still expect
to have it all, and now...
give us the patience, please,
to celebrate the bud, and the decay.
